Title: clarification needed to sect 4.3 to indicate that the normalization 
algorithm can be applied to wsp:Policy element used as XML element policy 
attachment

Description:
http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/~checkout~/2006/ws/policy/ws-policy-framework.html?content-type=text/html;%20charset=utf-8#Compact_Policy_Expression

The algorithm starts with a document information item. However, the 
algorithm
is meant to be applied in situations where the compact form policy 
expressions
are included in another base document using the attachment mechanisms 
defined
in WS-Policy 1.5 - Attachments. Obviously, in such situations, it is 
intended
that the policy expression be taken out of context and treated as if it 
were a
separate document.

Justification: Could be misunderstood.

Type: editorial

Proposal: Add a note to section 4.3 that says roughly the following:

Note: compact policy expressions that are included in other XML documents, 
such
as WSDL, as described in WS-Policy 1.5 - Attachments, are treated, for 
purposes
of normalization, as if they were extracted out of thier embedded context 
and
considered independently as a document.

Cheers,
