I thank you for the commendation, I am rather proud ;-)

However, having been someone who has spend much time trying to parse such
sentences in other specs, I'd agree with a re-write. How about:

NOTE: If both AnonymousResponses and NonAnonymousResponses are supported,
and the intention is to allow either to be used, care should be taken to
ensure there are alternatives such that a subject which supports only one
will have a compatible policy [WS Policy 1.5 - Primer section 3.4]. There
should be at least an alternative which includes just AnonymousResponses
as a nested assertion and an alternative with just NonAnonymousResponses
as a nested assertion
