And this is *not* an XML! Check the xml spec, it does not
allow arbitrary binary data in xml file. Thus, xmlsec
correctly complains when you try to use "Content" type
for octets.

Not sure I understand this. If you register these ID
attibutes in libxml2 using DTD, schema or manualy then
xmlsec will just do nothing. I don't think anyone
should/would complain in this case.
