Description Doug Davis 2009-10-29 15:32:39 UTC
For each spec (except MEX) we've defined policy URIs -for example,
in WS-Transfer we now have the XML prefix "wstrp" mapping to:

The WG needs to decide a couple of things:
1 - do we want to have a separate NS for the policy assertions or should
    we just reuse the normal NS for each spec
2 - if we do have separate namespaces then what do those URIs point to?
    For example, does http://.../2009/09/ws-trp reference the Transfer spec?
    What do we put in the Namespace table? Right now for "wstrp" it says
    "This specification".  Which, if remains, why do we have a separate NS?

If we see the policy assertions having a separate lifecycle from the specs
then a separate NS makes sense.  But if they will pretty much always be
tied to the spec then a separate NS seems pointless.

No proposal at this time - but we should discuss.

Resolved, eliminate the policy namespaces and use the policy of the specification
