Hi all,

I'm not sure what the proper way to submit this question is and I'm  
not sure that it's an issue.

Some feedback I've received from customers is that many of the WS- 
Policy examples are very "technical". i.e. they are capturing policy  
at a very low level - perhaps specific encryption algorithms etc.  
Does the current framework allow for higher level composites using  
the notion of references? E.g. It would be good if a IT Director or   
CIO could specify a "Sarbanes Oxley" policy. This might be specific  
to his organization but would be a composite of polices like,  
security, logging, transactions etc.

Perhaps it is only a lack of examples in this area and the framework  
allows for that. Any thoughts? Anyone come across this before?

Let me know if I need to submit this as an NEW ISSUE and I'll start  
over with it.
