XML signatures and RELAX NG schemas in ISO/IEC 29500-2 (OPC of OOXML)

The Office 2010 XaDeS support is detailed in one of the file format documents we have online, MS-OFFCRYPTO - it's available as a PDF at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc313071(office.12).aspx. The schemas are inline. The various other Office 2010 extensions are siblings of that document - an index is at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc313105(v=office.12).aspx.

I'll have to report back on the Exclusive C14N question.

You are right in saying that XML Signature 1.1 and XML Siganture Properties are still in draft status.

Exclusive C14N is a recommendation.  Why it is not referenced?

I would like to know more about the XAdES support by MS.  Are there any schemas for it?
