I think it's a matter of very detailed use of English. :) I view it as
a utility. But it doesn't matter.

No, the proper term really is canonicalization. I agree, the name is
somewhat cute, but within the community C14N is as well-known as I18N.
from xml.dom.ext import Canonicalize
and in ext/__init__.py I add
from c14n import Canonicalize
So the filename is c14n.py, but the exported name is more use-friendly.
