Is it correct to say:

1. Client has access to its own policy, the provider policy and the  
result of intersection which it performed
2. Result of intersection is a policy in its own right, and has no  
implicit meaning other than what is stated in that policy (with its  
own vocabulary)
HOWEVER
3. Client can interpret that result-of-intersection policy together  
with provider policy to infer acceptable interactions with provider,  
based on vocabulary present in provider policy.

Thus the policy that results from intersection itself does not say  
negation, but it can be inferred from that policy taken in  
conjunction with provider policy.

Is this an approach toward making this less confusing?

Thanks

regards, Frederick
