How about something like:

While this specification uses the terms "trust" and "policy" informally, it 
does not define semantics nor processing associated with either. Instead, 
it only defines how a Validate Service returns information that has been 
validated according to external trust and policy specifications. In fact, 
the benefit of an XKMS Validate Service is that it provides a front end to 
different security and PKI technologies with their own particular 
definitions.
