Description Christopher Ferris 2007-01-16 21:15:55 UTC


The algorithm starts with a document information item. However, the algorithm is meant to be applied in situations where the compact form policy expressions are included in another base document using the attachment mechanisms defined in WS-Policy 1.5 - Attachments. Obviously, in such situations, it is intended that the policy expression be taken out of context and treated as if it were a separate document.

Justification: Could be misunderstood.

Type: editorial

Proposal: Add a note to section 4.3 that says roughly the following:

Note: compact policy expressions that are included in other XML documents, such as WSDL, as described in WS-Policy 1.5 - Attachments, are treated, for purposes of normalization, as if they were extracted out of thier embedded context and considered independently as a document.
