Ignorable property of a policy assertion is captured in the policy data model [1]. Policy intersection is computed at the policy data model level and the parts of a policy assertion is visible to domain specific processing. It is not clear what additional information should be passed to domain specific processing beyond these?

[1] "An assertion MAY indicate that it is an ignorable policy assertion (see 4.4 Ignorable Policy Assertions)" - http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-ws-policy-20061117/#rPolicy_Assertion

Subject: NEW ISSUE (4263) [Primer] Inform domain specific processing of ignorability of assertions


Bugzilla: <http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=4263>

The new text added to primer on ignorable (as in issue 4041 and noted in
resolution  <http://www.w3.org/2007/01/18-ws-policy-
irc#T22-08-44-1> ) should
include explanation that domain specific processing should be aware of
ignorable marking of assertion. (Thread about proposal for 4041 at
<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-ws-policy/2007Jan/
0187.html> )

Proposal:

Add  following text proposed to be added at end of new section 3.4.1
Strict and
Lax Policy Intersection

"Domain specific processing should be made aware of whether
assertions it is
processing were marked as ignorable since that may impact domain
specific
processing."

[Note that this proposal is different from the following text which
was removed
from the original proposal for 4041

"When domain specific processing is to be performed in strict mode,
it is up to
that domain specific processing to interpret the Ignorable
rattribute. In lax
mode it is not relevant since ignorable assertions are not passed to
the domain
specific processing step of the intersection algorithm."]
