Title

Editorial Issue from David Hull

Description

>ACTION-295 Address the first item in message >http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-ws-policy/2007May/0002.html

I took an action to open an issue to address the first item in David Hull's
message.

David said,
<quote>
The rule for "Empty" states
<wsp:All /> expresses a policy with zero policy assertions. Note that since
wsp:Policy is equivalent to wsp:All, <wsp:Policy /> is therefore equivalent to
<wsp:All />, i.e., a policy alternative with zero assertions.

Elsewhere it says that <All/> represents alternatives, not policies, and there
is certainly a distinction between an empty policy and an empty alternative.  

Should the first sentence read " ... a policy alternative with zero policy
assertions"?
<quote/>

Yes

Justification - editorial

Target - Framework

Proposal

In Section 4.3.3 [1], replace the sentence "<wsp:All /> expresses a policy with
zero policy assertions" with "<wsp:All /> expresses a policy alternative with
zero policy assertions".
