I think I've worked out that the <i>type</i> place holder in the list of the
standard match functions is not meant to stand in for all the types 
by xacml, but is meant as a kind of wildcard to refer to the functions 
specified. So <i>type</i>-match doesn't mean integer-match, double-match,
etc, but actually just rfc822Name-match and x500Name-match.I think other
readers might be confused by this too.
