Section 4.2 and 4.1 says:

   2006/12/xmlc12n11#                  [CANON11]  Canonicalization
   2006/12/xmlc14n11#WithComments      [CANON11]  Canonicalization

It should say:

   2006/12/xmlc14n11#                  [CANON11]  Canonicalization
   2006/12/xmlc14n11#WithComments      [CANON11]  Canonicalization

Notes:

[CANON11] referencing to <http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/REC-xml-c14n11-20080502/>
only talks about c14n and not c12n.

If this is not a flaw but done purposely, there should be a not about it.

I could not find the original definitions for xmlc12n11 and xmlc14n11.
They are not in the referenced document.
(And google only shows copies of this rfc.)

For stability reasons it may be better to not change/correct this, as it may be already in use.
So a note about this discrepance may be appropriate. Or a reference to the document defining those uris.
