Hi Asir

Thanks... I understand all that, I even say "Lets take EPR just as an example" to refer to the fact the example is fictitious :-)

My question was about the clarifying how an effective policy should be calculated in cases when a policy externally attached to a
domain expression such as EPR...I'd prefer to see some general non-normative guidelines on how it should work. I appreciate it's all
domain-specific, but IMHO just saying it's all domain-specifc in the section is not ideal...
So lets's take an EPR just as an example. Does the specification section 3.4 recommends that a policy attached to domain expressions
( which identify policy subjects, EPR -> endpoint policy subject as an example) replaces all policies that can be collectively
associated with that policy subject elsewhere (in the associated WSDL in case of EPR) ?

Would it be a valid interpretation when applied to a web servicies domain where WSDLs are used ?

I think this is what is currently recommended : "policies contained within a policy subject (say an EPR
or another policy subject) aren't in-scope with respect to an external policy attachment."
Or may be not... It's domain-specific...
I believe this should be clarified further as a general non-normative recommenadtion...

Cheers, Sergey Beryozkin
