X9.73 defines an additional CMS content type.  It is:

  NamedKeyEncryptedData ::= SEQUENCE {
      version Version,
      keyName KeyName OPTIONAL,
      encryptedContentInfo EncryptedContentInfo }

Does anyone see a reason to fold the keyName into EncryptedData?

What is the KeyName, and what is one suppossed to do with it?
