Is this going to encode in the same way as the 1988-syntax version (from
Appendix A.2):

     PreferredSignatureAlgorithm ::= SEQUENCE {
        sigIdentifier        AlgorithmIdentifier,
        pubKeyAlgIdentifier  SMIMECapability OPTIONAL
        }

-Ben

[JLS]  From RFC 5755

SMIMECapability ::= SEQUENCE {
      capabilityID OBJECT IDENTIFIER,
      parameters ANY DEFINED BY capabilityID OPTIONAL }

Which is the same structure as what AlgorithmIdentifier uses.
