I think you might be misunderstanding the spec. 
"urn:oasis:names:tc:xspa:1.0:subject:hl7:permission" is not a prefix, 
but the identifier of the attribute (the spec is not very clear on 
this). The actual permission value would be the attribute value.

My best guess is that an XACML example for the HL7 permission "PRD-012" 
would look like this:

<Attribute AttributeId="urn:oasis:names:tc:xspa:1.0:subject:hl7:permission">
<AttributeValue DataType="string">PRD-012</AttributeValue>
