Since nesting is optional and depends on the assertion why would a policy
author have to include a empty wsp:Policy element  ? I also don't consider
an empty wsp:Policy element the same as not having a wsp:Policy element.

             AM                        and 3548                            

Issue 3549

"Require assertions to be distinguished from parameter elements"

Proposed Resolution:

Proposed change to Framework section 3.1


"Domain authors MAY define that an assertion contains a policy
expression as one of its [children]. Policy expression nesting is
used by domain authors to further qualify one or more specific
aspects of the original assertion. For example, security policy
domain authors may define an assertion describing a set of security
algorithms to qualify the specific behavior of a security binding

Add additional sentences:
Any assertion that may contain a policy expression as a child must
always have a child wsp:Policy element that either contains that
policy expression, or is empty if the child policy expression is
optional and not needed."

Related issues:

Issue 3548 is related to 3549, close with no action once 3549 is
