Heh. Not a stupid question at all. I'm sure lots of other people wonder
at that too.

In my opinion, the medical world today provides a lot of very good, very
tangible security use-cases and examples. Therefore, the examples in the
specification are all about medical records (just to stay consistent, I
think). A lot of the XPath questions that people raise are based on the
examples in the spec, so the medical theme is carried over.

Dunno. Maybe there is a deeper reason. Can anyone from the early XACML
days shed some light on this?
