No, absolutely not. Ignorability is at the discretion of the policy consumer only. Provider who marks
the assertion as being ignorable does not mean that this is something which can be ignored by the provider itself. Provider does it. Provider may itself act as the consumer but it still the case that the ignorability is at the discretion of consumer only

Cheers, Sergey
