+1 with one minor nit - "The Web Services Policy 1.5 - Framework
provides a general purpose model and corresponding syntax to describe
the policies of entities in a Web services-based system."

Subject: NEW ISSUE: Modify wording in Abstract for Framework document

 

Title  --  

Modify restrictive wording about application of policies to a Web
Service in the Framework abstract.

 

Description -- 

In the abstract section, the wording of the sentence "The Web Services
Policy 1.5 - Framework provides a general purpose model and
corresponding syntax to describe the policies of a Web Service." [my
bold/italics] ignores the fact that policies apply just as well to a
requetor as to an endpoint ("a Web Service").

 

Target --

Abstract section in WS-Policy Framework 1.5 document.

 

Proposal --

I actually noticed a very well-worded alternative in the Introduction
section (Section 1): "Web Services Policy provides a flexible and
extensible grammar 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." (my bold/italics). I
propose we use similar wording in the abstract. The new sentence would
read: "The Web Services Policy 1.5 - Framework provides a general
purpose model and corresponding syntax to describe the policies in a Web
services-based system." (again, my bold/italics).
