Folks,
I apologise that this doesn't exactly fit the format that Paul talked about this afternoon, but I actually sent the email hours ago, before Paul's discussion, even though it just appeared now.  --  Toufic

Subject: NEW ISSUE: Policy Negotiation


Title - Policy Negotiation
 
Description -
In Section 1.2 (Out of Scope) of the WG Charter [1], under the section "Application Infrastructure", policy negotiation is explicitly mentioned as out of scope. It would be useful for the WG to discuss the ramifications of this exclusion, and possibly flag it as an item for follow-on work.
 
Justification -
Considering that the spec already defines an intersection mechanism for reconciling requester and endpoint policies, and considering that policy negotiation could be an important real world usage use case (think for example of the SSL handshake as an analogy), the topic cannot be ignored.
