Re: Issue 3619 - input from WS-Addressing WG


The reconciliation with embedded/referenced WSDLs should happen irrespectively of whether a policy is attached to EPR through an 
embedded wsp:Policy or through a WS-Policy Attachment mechanism (as shown in the example in Section 3.4).

What is the algorithm for reconciling an embedded wsp:Policy with the WSDLs ? The same algorithm should be applied to a WS-Policy 
Attachment example.
If both EPR-embedded (wsp:Policy) and wsp:PolicyAttachment-attached policies are available at the same time then one of then should 
take precedence and then the chosen policy should be reconciled with WSDLs.

As a side question : why would someone have a policy attached to/embedded in EPR anyway ? What is the advantage of doing it (and 
hence requiring a policy consumer to go through a reconcilation process) instead of attaching it directly to a policy subject inside 
a corresponding WSDL definition ?
