Thanks, these are all done in except as noted below.

In dsig, particularly as the signature and its data was more likely to be 
seperated (and/or there'd be  multiple signatures) I was keen on making the 
relationship explicit. I expect less of that here. I could go either way? 
Do you prefer we be consistent?

But the following sentence, "The application supplies the XML document 
context and identifies the EncryptedData element being replaced. " goes 
with the replace. Right? I did split the sentence as you suggested, so 
please let me know if that helps.
