Hi Sean,

Yes, at first, I thought about updating the existing tests in 
test/javax/xml/crypto/dsig directory. But then I noticed that both 
GenerationTests and ValidationTests has ~30 test cases. And new 
Detached.java test contains >30 test cases. If one of test cases fails, 
JTREG will show that full test failed. As a result, it may hide failures 
of other test cases (an engineer should look at logs carefully). Also it 
may be better to split tests if possible when some tools for automated 
failures analysis is used (for example, Java SQE uses such a tool).

That was the main reason why I added a separate test. Not sure if 
performance may be an issue, I have not done any measurement.
