Agree. We suggest using a stable URI for the referenced MTOM
serialization policy assertion -

Title: Primer uses an assertion for MTOM that does not exist


The primer utilizes MTOM Serialization assertion. There are several
with this assertion. These problems make the assertion use by a

Although the serialization optimization has been defined by XMLP wg, the
WS-Policy assertion appears to exists only in products privately. The
definition of the assertion is not available. Therefore, its scope and
is not known. 

The primer uses the assertion reference & namespace in a localized
fashion only
to define Optional Assertions in Section 2.6 and Appendix B. 


In order for the Primer to "refer" to an assertion and use it, the
should be available or it should be defined. 


There are three options: 

-- Owner(s) of the assertion may consider submitting to w3c as a
to generate a stable URI for reference. 

-- The Primer document can define the Assertion and its scope as an
illustrative example. 

-- Since the utility of the mythical MTOM assertion in the referred
chapter is
to illustrate optional assertion use, instead WS-RMP defined by OASIS
WS-RX tc
can be used. Its semantics/ scope is available and it is also used with
optional="true" attribute. 


Since MTOM serialization optimization capability is a general
defining it just in the Primer document will not enable its reuse.
of the MTOM assertion could enable its general use, not as an
illustration for
WS-Policy, but it may take time. 

Without the presence of a stable URI and definition of MTOM assertion,
preference is 3.
