This is regarding AI 110 - http://www.w3.org/2005/06/tracker/wspolicy/actions/110
AI-110 was given to the editors to, "Review next editors draft to see if there are any security considerations from framework doc that apply to attachment doc". This was a result of moving of the security considerations section from the Primer to the Framework specification.
I have reviewed the security considerations sections in current editors drafts (see: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-ws-policy/2006Oct/0111.html) of both Framework and Attachment specifications. The WS-Policy 1.5 Attachment specification already reflects the security considerations<http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/~checkout~/2006/ws/policy/ws-policy-attachment.html#SecurityConsiderations> that are directly applicable to Policy Attachments<http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/~checkout~/2006/ws/policy/ws-policy-attachment.html#policy_attachment>. However it could be useful to add a sentence that points to the Security Consideration Section of the Framework specification<http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/~checkout~/2006/ws/policy/ws-policy-framework.html#Security_Considerations>, so that some of the items that are applicable in general are also pointed to from here (e.g. Spoofing and Tampering and General XML considerations). There is no need to duplicate that information. A simple "See also the Security Considerations Section in the WS-Policy 1.5 Framework Specification", should suffice.
