It is System.Security.Cryptography.Xml.XmlC14N(WithComments)Transform.
I think it will use almost fully implemented XmlTextWriter class.

To implement c14n, we also need XmlResolver, and it'll require
System.Net.WebClient or so to get external resources on the web.
Moreover, even DTD parser is not implemented yet...
