However, while I agree, does this support the inter-EncryptedData chaining 
described in section 4.5 of [prop3]? (I don't see 4.5 as that compelling a 
use case regardless so perhaps someone could speak to that?)

5.4 Chaining between EncryptedData Elements
In this example, we show how chaining between two EncryptedData cipher 
texts. The EncryptedData "ED1" can be decrypted using the explicit IV and 
referenced symmetric key. EncryptedData "ED2" can be decrypted by using the 
output from decrypting ED1 as the input IV to "ED2".
