Subject: empty target evaluation

See the 3.0 spec (xacml-3.0-core-spec-wd-06-en.doc), Section 7.6, Target

This doesn't seem to account for an empty Policy/Target element.  The
first example policy (section 4.1.1) shows an empty Target element, with
the explanation that this policy applies to all decision requests.

Also section 7.9, Rule evaluation, doesn't account for a missing Target
element.  Strictly interpreted, this would mean that a Rule with no
Target element could never return its Effect value.

Will the XACML TC consider clarifying the normative sections 7.6 and 7.9
to specify the evaluation of missing and empty Target elements?
