Hello

While deciding upon how a policy should be attached directly inside EPR may indeed be out-of-scope, addressing the precedence concerns as described at http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=3620 may well be in a scope as I feel it's a general WS-Policy issue. 

I think the precedence concerns there are the same as those which are addressed in Section 3.4 of WS-Policy Attachment.  

Thanks,

  Subject: Issue 3620 is out of scope


  Policy Attachment to WS-Addr EndpointReferences

  http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=3620

   

  I believe this issue is out of scope for the current version of WS-Policy.  

   

  The charter [1] clearly states:

   

  "The Web Services Policy Working Group is also chartered to standardize mechanisms for associating policy expressions with Web Service constructs. These mechanisms consist of items 5-9 below."

   

  and this explicit list does not include the additional work of attaching policies to EPRs:

  5.      A model for attaching policies to WSDL 1.1 and WSDL 2.0 constructs. The model defines: 

  a.      A partitioning of WSDL constructs into message, operation, endpoint, and service policy subjects. 

  b.      The semantics of attaching a policy to each policy subject. 

  c.      How to combine policies attached to more than one WSDL component within a single policy subject. 

  6.      An XML representation of policy expressions attached to WSDL 1.1 and WSDL 2.0 constructs and annotating those policy expressions as required extensions using the WSDL-defined extensibility flag @wsdl:required. 

  7.      A model for attaching policies to UDDI v2 and UDDI v3 entities. The model defines: 

  a.      A partitioning of UDDI constructs into service provider, service, and endpoint policy subjects. 

  b.      The semantics of attaching a policy to each policy subject. 

  c.      How to combine policies attached to more than one UDDI entity within a policy subject. 

  8.      A set of tModels for referencing and registering policy expressions in UDDI v2 and UDDI v3. 

  9.      A general-purpose mechanism for external policy attachment. 

  In addition the charter clearly states:

  "The following is intended to more tightly constrain the in-scope features, to prevent feature bloat and assure timely delivery. If some function, mechanism or feature is not mentioned here, and it is not mentioned in the Scope of Work section either, then it will be deemed to be out of scope."

  I believe this is a feature request that we should consider for V.Next (e.g. futureConsideration [1]) in order to assure timely delivery of the first WS-Policy Recommendation.
