Do you believe this to be the case regardless of the number of  
indirections between the original resource URI and the terminal XRD  
instance canonicalID?

If there are multiple redirections between the initial resource  
identifier before reaching the XRD, and assuming the HTTP Authority  
trust profile, where the signing key is in the DNS administrative  
realm of the XRD location, I do not see how the signer has any  
knowledge of prior indirections (and thus the validity of the  
association between the initial resource and the CID).

Or perhaps I am straying into an obscure use case?
