Re: [xml] make XPointer( id(XX) ) and C14n work without DTD

The short, albeit unsatisfying answer, is that you cannot make
XML dignaturse "just work" using LibXML and XMLSEC without
writing a minimal DTD or hacking the code.  It has to do with
the interactions of standards; the XML libraries won't recognize
an attribute as an ID attribute without some indication, and
the security standards leave that indication up to the crypto-using

"Hope this (bad news) helps.
