      1. Only JSON signatures will be supported
        1. Will reconsider in future if this feature is requested by implementers
      2. Clarify Documentation in CapabilityStatement.:
        1. Change SHOULD support XML to MAY support XML
        2. If a systems chooses to support XML, they need to be aware that JSON signatures can only be created and validated in native JSON (transforms to XML will invalidate signatures).

    Description

      The signature algorithm for XML is completely different than JSON.  Right now, we say JSON is SHALL and XML is SHOULD.  Do we want to have systems support XML signatures?  Do we want to say signatures are JSON only (i.e. if you ask for XML, you get not signature)?  Do we want to remove support for XML entirely?
