Hi Amir, I'm not sure what version you are looking at but:

$Revision: 1.40 $ on $Date: 2001/08/27 19:39:32 $ UTC

The EncryptedData or EncryptedKey element specify the associated keying 
material via a KeyInfo element child. All of the child elements of ds:KeyInfo 
specified in [XMLDSIG] can appear. In addition, KeyInfo is extended to allow 
two additional child elements: EncryptedKey (Section 3.4.1) and 
AgreementMethod (Section 5.5).
