As discussed previously, I've taken a (big) stab at reworking the policy
requirements document; you can see the new version at:

In summary, I have:
* reorganized it around the access control interactions (granular user
consent, grouped permissions, delegated authority) rather than their
target (web site/widgets, trusted/non-trusted)

* I've rewritten the use cases as user stories to make them more
concrete and more consistent; they are completed with a short analysis
that explains what the story implies technically

* I've reorganized the requirements to make them match the user stories
they are bound with

* I've moved the security and privacy threats into an appendix

I think the document could use some illustrations (e.g. screenshots of
possible interactions mechanisms, or diagrams showing the links between
the various players in the stories), but this would require more energy
than I have left :)

These are rather big and thorough changes; if the result is not up to
what the group wants, this can easily be reverted to the previous
