I think I agree with what Umit said during the call, perhaps we  
should flag assertions that only apply to the provider, perhaps with  
a "provider-only" attribute.  This is declarative of the fact that  
this assertion has no wire impact and only states that the assertion  
applies to the provider. Unlike "local" and "advisory" this does not  
attempt to imply how a client should behave knowing this information.

In other words treat optionality and provider-only as orthogonal  
(especially since optionality is about policy alternatives).

regards, Frederick
