Hopefully we won't need that much profiles :-)

For instance, signature time in OOo is stored in a <dc:time> in a 
<ds:SignatureProperty> inside a <ds:Object>. That's correct per spec,
but will other implementations be able to figure it out ?

(XAdES has SigningTime, for instance)

Will implementations be able to handle multiple signatures ?

(note I'm not ranting against OOo, AFAIK it is the only office suite code
base that signs ODF documents, but just thinking out loud what could
go wrong)

Best regards,
