Title - framework and domain specific policy assertions, 

 

Description - 

 

The introductory section of [1] needs to be made a little crisper in
explaining the presumed division of labor between a policy framework
specification and a policy domain specification.

 

Justification - 

 

Web Services Policy provides a flexible and extensible language for
expressing the capabilities, requirements, and general characteristics
of entities in an XML Web services-based system. Web Services Policy 1.5
- Framework defines a framework and a model for the expression of these
properties as policies.

 

Target - 

 

At least the initial sentences of the Introduction of [1] could use some
tinkering.

 

Proposal - 

 

[Disputed items like XML left in. "Language" replaces "grammar", though.
]

 

Policies for Web Services express capabilities, requirements and general
characteristics of entities in an XML-based, Web Services system.
Languages for stating policies have two parts: a part comprising the
domain specific language used to state policy assertions, and a language
framework for organizing groups of policy alternatives. This
specification, Web Services Policy 1.5 - Framework, defines a framework
and a model for the organization and structure of Web Service,
domain-specific policies.
