Hi Manu

can I suggest that you change and simplify the wording of the poll as

Role D verifies that Role C is either the Role A of the Claim or is
entitled to represent the Role A of the Claims.

Role C is typically the Role A of Claims. In some circumstances, where
the Role C is not the Role A of the Claim, then the Role C must be able
to prove that he/she is authorized to provide the Claims.


Role D verifies that Role C is either the Role A of the Claim or able to
prove that he/she is authorized to provide the Claims.

I think the compact version is clearer and more precise
