Title: WS-Policy does not define its relationship to XML Base [1]

Description:

WS-Policy does not define its relationship to XML Base [1]

Justification:

The XML Base spec says:
        The deployment of XML Base is through normative reference by new
specifications, for example XLink 
        and the XML Infoset. Applications and specifications built upon 
these
new technologies will natively support 
        XML Base. The behavior of xml:base attributes in applications 
based on
specifications that do not have 
        direct or indirect normative reference to XML Base is undefined. 

Unspecifying the relationship to XML Base will likely lead to 
interoperability
problems, since by definition, behavior is undefined.

Proposal:
 TBD, but roughly treat along the lines of how SOAP1.2 has handled it [2]
