Maybe there is something I'm missing about case 1: can certain base64
blobs not be be serialized in canonical lexical form?

I had assumed that this limitation in XOP was only applying to
intermediaries: they may receive an element which is not in canonical
lexical representation; if their job was for example to XOP-optimize
the SOAP message, then they would not be able to.

However, for the message originator, I thought that it always had the
choice and therefore it was not a problem. If I am designing my
application and I have to use XOP, then I should be able to do so. If
I can't for some reason, then I should not use a service that requires
XOP-optimization of some things.

Am I missing something?
