+1

Works for me. That resolves the ambiguity of "should" vs. "should not".
Thanks!  --  Toufic

Hello Toufic,

 

Based on the Wed WG conference call, we are wondering if G2 could be
split into two best practices:

 

G2-a) Assertion authors should define assertions for behaviors that are
relevant to compatibility assessment, such as web service protocols that
manifest on the wire.

 

G2-b) Assertion authors should recommend that assertions that are not
relevant to compatibility assessment be marked with the wsp:Ignorable
attribute.

 

Do they help to resolve issue 4566?

 

Regards,

 

Asir S Vedamuthu

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.
