All that said, if you really want to allow this sort of thing, the way

isn't to try and figure out how to describe the myriad representations
in our current set of encodings. That's never going to work, because
will never stop coming up with variations you haven't thought of.
What you do instead is sign the material under the encoding,
encoding variations from the signature. And while you're at it, you do
stages, so that when you're dealing with really large parts you can reuse
previosuly computed hashes.
