Is there any disagreement with all of these statements being True?

1) If a policy assertion is defined by the domain author to contain  
one or more nested assertions then it MUST contain a wsp:Policy,  
wsp:ExactlyOne or wsp:All element as a direct child (True)

1a) In normal form any assertion that contains a nested assertion  
will only have one nested assertion alternative (True)

2) If a policy assertion is defined by the domain author to contain  
one or more nested assertions any instance of the assertion need not  
contain any of these actual assertions. Their use may be defined as  
optional by the domain assertion author. However, one of the  
wsp:Policy, ExactlyOne or All child elements must always be present,  
but may have empty content (True).

3) An assertion that is not defined by the domain author to contain  
nested assertions may never have a wsp:Policy,ExactlyOne or All  
child. (True)

4) It is meaningless to compare <a /> and <a><Policy /> since this  
case should never occur, since one of the two forms would be in error  
when 'a' is a specific assertion (True)

This would lead us to close issue 3548 with no action needed.
