I reviewed this draft.  The keyprov working group has defined a CMS
content type for transporting a symmetric key and related
parameters. (That was a big part of why we chartered them)
In order to protected these keys, various CMS facilities can be used.

This draft describes what algorithms need to be implemented each CMS

There were no surprises; this looks fine.
