Wouldn't transforms make sense? At the workshop, there was the diecussion 
about c14n and compression, which read (if I understood it right):

* If you want to c14n you instances before encryption - do so!
* If you want to compress you instances before encryption - do so!

but how do we indicate what we did if we don't have a list of 
transformations? This would make the "compression or not" discussion 
obsolete, because the application could choose.
