[poe] 3.1.1 Policy Conflict

simonstey has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/poe:

== 3.1.1 Policy Conflict ==
> The conflict attribute is used either to resolve conflicts arising 
from the merging of policies, 

- only from merging? what if a policy contains conflicting rules, but 
wasn't merged with any other policy?

> specifically when there are conflicting Actions in the Permissions 
and Prohibitions, 

- what constitutes a conflict? 
- how are _conflicting Actions_ identified? 
- is it possible that two permitted actions of the same policy are 
causing a conflict?

> or to set priorities over the Permissions/Prohibitions in the same 

- what?

> perm: the Permissions will always takes preference
prohibit: the Prohibitions will always takes preference

- what preference?

> invalid: the policy is invalid

- i.e., any policy using `invalid` as conflict resolution strategy is 
invalid per definition?
