spec comments


Some minor comments on the spec:


In the agreement method schema, digest method is optional; but, the
definition of agreement method requires a digest method. Should it
be nonoptional or do we need text?

In some places, we use <element ref="ds:DigestMethod"> and in others,
<element name="DigestMethod" type="ds:DigestMethodType">. Should we
just adopt the former (as is the case with our use of unadulterated
KeyInfo) or is there an intended distinction?

In the workshop, did we say something about whitespace handling in
the agreement method Nonce element? Do we strip just surrounding
whitespace or also internal whitespace, or should we do none?

Am I missing something, or where is it specified which padding method
is used by #tripledes-cbc, etc?
