Hi Fabian,

I think this is a reasonable idea (this is a guideline from the Framework text), but I suggest we deal with it as a separate issue.

Regarding part 2 of the proposal, in addition to removing the paragraph,
I think we should add text to chapter 5 explaining that the semantics of
policy assertions and expressions must remain the same independently of
the means by which the policy expression is attached to a policy subject.
