Action:

I think in the spirit of the policy assertion definition, we may
consider referencing the behavior represented by the assertion. 

Modify the proposal in the email below from:
"When an assertion whose type is part of the policy vocabulary but is
not included in a policy alternative, the provider does not apply that
policy assertion in that policy alternative."

To:
Option 1:
"When an assertion whose type is part of the policy vocabulary but is
not included in a policy alternative, the behavior indicated by that
policy assertion is not applied to a subject in that policy alternative"

Option 2:
"When an assertion whose type is part of the policy vocabulary but is
not included in a policy alternative, the behavior [of an entity]
indicated by that policy assertion is considered as undefined in that
policy alternative"

>For example, if there is a policy with an assertion marked with
"optional='true'" this puts the assertion in the vocabulary of the
policy.  When this policy is normalized the assertion appears in one
alternative and not in the other.  If the alternative that does not
include the assertion is chosen then it is explicitly prohibited to
apply the assertion as the assertion is part of the policy vocabulary.

mm1: Ashok, where this text falls in the specification, it is premature 
to discuss wsp:Optional, normalization and XML representation. In 
addition, this text duplicates existing material.  We could revise the 
existing text in Section 3.2:

    Change from: An assertion whose type is part of the policy's
    vocabulary but is not included in an alternative is explicitly
    prohibited by the alternative.
    Change to: When an assertion whose type is part of the policy
    vocabulary but is not included in a policy alternative, the provider
    does not apply that policy assertion in that policy alternative.

An option to consider rather than another example is to reference 
further sections and include more detail in the Guideline and/or Primer 
documents. Thanks.
