1. add new section 4.3.6 to call out the normalization algorithm as its 
own section

2  add note to wsp:All and wsp:ExactlyOne to indicate why attribute 
extensibility not allowed

3. s/variety/zero or more/

4. sect 4.3.3 s/(in compact form)/in compact form/g in outlines for 

5. replace sect 4 introductory prose with:

This section describes how to convey policy in an interoperable form, 
using the XML Infoset representation of a policy. [Definition: A policy 
expression is an XML Infoset representation of a policy, either in a 
normal form or in an equivalent compact form.] 

The normal form (see sect. 4.1) of a policy expression is the most 
straightforward XML Infoset representation of the policy data model. 
Equivalent, alternative representations allow policy authors to compactly 
express a policy (see section 4.3). Policy authors might be more 
interested in the compact form (seesection 4.3), where the outlines and 
definitions describe what is valid with regards to the policy language XML 

While the policy language XML Schema is a representation of the compact 
form, the normal form is more restrictive as outlined in Section 4.1.

6. add missing ellipses from wsp:Policy and wsp:Policyreference in the 
outlines in the new sections in

7. s,Additio/nal,Additional,

8.     change:
Additio/nal elements  MAY be specified but  MUST NOT use the Web Services 
Policy language XML namespace name and  MUST NOT contradict the semantics 
of the [parent element]; if an element is not recognized, it  MUST be 
treated as an assertion.


Additional elements MAY be specified. Such elements MUST NOT use the Web 
Services Policy language XML namespace name and  MUST NOT contradict the 
semantics of the [parent element]. 

record action to Monica to open issue against primer and guidelines 
related to the 4196 issue
