It seems to make sense to chose option a) so that this works for  
clients that are not aware of the EndOfLife assertion. The text in  
the proposal following the choice reads as if a) were chosen which is  
consistent with that choice.

Thus propose

be replaced with

"policy alternative offered should not contain the EndOfLife policy  
assertion even with an ignorable attribute. This is because an  
alternative with the EndOfLife assertion with an ignorable attribute  
will only intersect with a client operating in strict intersection  
mode, IF the client also has an EndOfLife policy assertion."
