Dear Marco,

would it be possible to set up some kind of wiki or similar for the 
contributions you request below (use cases and policy languages) or do you 
envision to simply exchange this information by e-mail?

A more elaborated introduction to myself, my name is Daniel Olmedilla and I 
work in Hannover (Germany) at L3S Research Center & Hannover University. My 
main interests are on access control, policy-driven negotiations and privacy 
preservation. Some more information about me is available at 

My initial expectations coincide exactly with the topics stated in the mail 
sent by Marco. I would like to gather a set of use cases and requirements, as 
well as to structure existing initiatives. Both from different perspectives 
(industry and academia) and application areas (access control, service level 
agreements, business rules, trust negotiations, etc.).
