	Of course, one of the nice things about using a binary format
based on ASN.1 defined binary encodings is that the rules for
canonicalization, encryption, signing, etc. are fully developed, have
been in extensive use for many years, and are widely implemented. No
invention or adaptation is required. The ASN.1 world dealt with all
these issues long before XML even existed.
