As an additional comment, we may wish to consider a global change 
consistent with the correction in 2. below (to alleviate confusion which 
could exist).

Changes specific to Action 256 are as follows (as outlined in email 
referenced above):
1. Add at the end of Section 3.4.1, Primer just before the last 
statement on domain-specific processing (as a separate paragraph):

(UPDATED)

Regardless of chosen policy intersection mode, the wsp:Ignorable marker on a policy assertion does not express any requirement on the behavior
of the client, rather, it is used for intersection as indicated in Section 2.7. After intersection, any assertions contained in the
resulting policy that are understood by the client are handled as expected, and are not ignored, regardless whether those assertions are
marked with wsp:Ignorable.

2. Change/correct a bit of existing text in Section 3.4.1, Primer.
Change from:

When using the strict intersection mode ignorable assertions are
part of the policy alternative vocabulary, so the |wsp:Ignorable|
attribute does not impact the intersection result even when the
|wsp:Ignorable| attribute value is “true”.

Change to:

When using the strict intersection mode, assertions marked with
wsp:Ignorable are part of the policy alternative vocabulary, so the
|wsp:Ignorable| attribute does not impact the intersection result
even when the |wsp:Ignorable| attribute value is “true”.
