The task of finding appropriate extensions/plugins for intersection is 
complicated by the fact that any policy processor needs to iterate 
through every single assertion in the policy in order to determine the 
vocabulary and the domains used in the policy. Have we considered 
stating the domains a policy up front? Hopefully we can start to engage 
this discussion today. Thanks.
