These are both low-level details that weren't anticipated in the 
requirements doc, and which I don't see much use for.

CanonicalizationMethod is just for canonicalizing ds:SignedInfo.  Why would 
the client care how this is done?

As for SignatureMethod, wouldn't the server know on its own which 
SignatureMethod to use with different key types?  Why would the client want 
to control this?
