Re: problem with conformance tests

Hi Satoshi. Thank you for your response. Could you please forward this email
to the comment list, since I seem to be having trouble with it.

I absolutely agree that there is no detail in the spec. This is a real issue.
The problem, of course, is that the PDP is supposed to ignore what's in the
assignments, so it's hard to talk about the correct format :) In this case,
because AttributeAssignment _is_ an AttributeValue, I believe you have to
follow the definition of AttributeValue to get the correct behavior. Maybe I'll
suggest some new language for XACML 2.0 to describe this...

A separate problem here is that I'm not sure string should be used the way
it's being used in these examples (ie, as a container for complex content). I
raised this issue once before, but never heard any comments back. I think I'll
try raising it again.

I can't seem to find them now, but I know I had this discussion at some
point. I'll see what I can find.
