           Summary: Ordering of Assertions
           Product: WS-Policy

          Platform: All
               URL: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-ws-
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Guidelines

The Framework document says: “Assertions within an alternative are not 
ordered, and thus aspects such as the order in which behaviors 
(indicated by assertions) are applied to a subject 
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2007/REC-ws-policy-20070904/#policy_subject> are 
beyond the scope of this specification. However, authors can write 
assertions that control the order in which behaviors are applied.”. This 
is a curious head-in-the-sand statement as it admits that the order in 
which assertions within an alternative are applied can be important and 
then refuses to address the problem.
