This doesn't sound right. 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: framework and domain specific policy assertions-- clarification of division of concerns in the Introductory sentence



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.
