There are none because the spec doesn't rely on them. If you sign raw
bytes, the reference is to an octet-stream, with no Transforms, and so the
digest is done over those octets directly.

The only reason it would break is if you specified a transform that
requires a node set, and then it would be obligated to parse the octets
into XML.
