Hi Felix, Fabian:

Fabian is quite correct - I believe the text of the issue makes clear
that the problem isn't about working on domain-specific content.  It's
about the fact that our framework defines a generic "intersection"
operation which cannot be relied upon to function correctly in all cases
without domain-specifc knowledge.  And worse, there is no interoperable
way of knowing when such knowledge is needed for a given set of
policies.

I think it's fine (although misguided :)) to suggest that the WG should
solve the issue by leaving things as they are.  I think it's wrong,
however, to suggest that the issue is out of scope.

Thanks,
--Glen
