This draft looks complete except for the section on SMIMECapabilities.

Either your text or your DER encoded values need to be changed.  You
have stated that 

        CamelliaSMimeCapabilty ::= NULL 

And you have stated that

        The parameter associated with this OID MUST be

This means that the first encoding should be 

128          30 0f 06 0b 2a 83 08 8c 9a 4b 3d 01 01 01 02 05 00

This is because NULL is a defined value within the DER encoding system
having a tag value of 5 and a length of 0.   I have just looked back at
the AES document and found that I have this section incorrect as well.
I will need to update it.

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line 
Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the S/MIME Mail Security Working 
Group of the IETF.

      Title           : Use of the Camellia Encryption 
Algorithm in CMS
      Author(s)       : S. Moriai, A. Kato
      Filename        : draft-ietf-smime-camellia-01.txt
      Pages           : 11

This document specifies how to incorporate the Camellia encryption
algorithm into the S/MIME Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS) as an
additional algorithm for symmetric encryption.  The relevant object
identifiers (OIDs) and processing steps are provided so that
Camellia may be used in the CMS specification (RFC 3369, RFC 3370)
for content and key encryption.

NOTE: The mail server at can return the document in
      MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
      feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
      command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
      a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant 
mail readers
      exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
      "multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
      up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
      how to manipulate these messages.
