5.1.1 Table of Algorithms in Encryption 1.1

MURATA Makoto (FAMILY Given)
I do not understand the note:

   Note that the same URI is used to identify base64 both
   in "encoding" context (e.g. when needed within
   a CipherValue element) as well as in "transform" context
  (when identifying a base64 transform)."


in XML Encryption 1.1.

The CipherValue element does not have the Algorithm attribute.
Why can the URI http://www.w3.org/2000/09/xmldsig#base64
be used for encoding?
