Hi Thomas,

here are a few comments:

Technical:

You write:

"
The Policy Languages Interest Group is designed as a forum to support 
researchers, developers, solution providers, and users of policy 
languages such as XACML 
<http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/tc_home.php?wg_abbrev=xacml> 
(eXtensible Access Control Markup Language) and P3P <../> (W3C's 
Platform for Privacy Preferences Project). It provides a forum to enable 
broader collaboration, through use of email discussion, scheduled IRC 
topic chats, Wikis, and Weblog tools.
"

I think it would be fair to mention other policy languages as well, such 
as the onces developed within the IETF that enjoy IETF, 3GPP and OMA 
support. Here are the most recent documents:
* Common Policy: http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4745
* Geolocation Privacy Policy: 
http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-geopriv-policy
* Presence Authorization Policy: 
http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-simple-presence-rules
Common Policy is also used in the consent framework in SIP.



Editorial:

Change from:

"

The Policy Languages Interest Group is a forum for W3C Members and 
 >>>non-Members<<< to discuss interoperability issues - along with 
related requirements and  needs  - that arise when using a variety of 
policy languages where there is a need to compute results across these 
multiple languages.
