Nothing custom, but the last section of "RDF For Web Service Policy
Assertions" [1] starts on it a bit. The problem is that the web
services folks haven't worked out their desired
expressivity. Proposals range from simple identification (logical
operations are wrapped into a new identifier, ala FredzAuthentication
^ JoezReliableMessaging turns into MyAuthReliableMsg) to all of
conjunction, disjunction, negation.

ws-policy [2], a leading contender, recently struck negation and now
offers conjunction and disjunction. ws-policy policies are compared
for equivilence or subsumption by examining the disjunctive normal
form of the policy expression. ala comparing
  policy1:
    FredzAuthentication ^ (JoezReliableMessaging v SuezTransactions)
  policy2:
    FredzAuthentication ^ SuezTransactions
