First of all, please use xmlsec mailing list for all questions about 
xmlsec library.

Yes, xmlsec needs to have a new template for each signature it performs 
it puts signature results in the template. However, the template does 
not need to be
a standalone XML file. For example, in your case, you can put two 
templates in the
same document and just provide different "start nodes" for two different 
The way you select "start nodes" is completely up to you.
