Proposed new wording:
"Whenever possible, Assertion Authors should try to define policy assertions for behaviors that are relevant to compatibility tests, such as web service protocols that manifest on the wire."
This recognizes the fact that it's not always possible (or desirable) to write assertions for behavior that manifests itself on the wire.

Title: Guideline G2 to be reconsidered

 

Description: Guideline G2 [1], slated for Section 5.1 of the Guidelines document [2], reads: "An assertion author should define policy assertions for behaviors that are relevant to compatibility tests, such as web service protocols that manifest on the wire". It seems to me that this good practice has been overtaken by events around Ignorable (and maybe even the closed/open world discussion of late). As editor, I don't feel comfortable adding it to the guidelines document without further clarification from the workgroup.
