The ALFS DTD supported by nALFS-1.2.X does not support any digest 
checking of patches directly, except by using {download} elements to 
copy them.

When the profiles are upgraded to DTD 3.2 in the near future, the 
{patch} element will support digest checking directly, so it makes sense 
to have them there.
