Subject: [xacml] Proposed resolution to PM-2-08: Outcome of policies and theircombination

Based on the March, 2002 Face-to-Face, I believe the following
issue, for which Ernesto and Polar are champions, is ready to

[This resolution is related to the proposed resolutions to
PM-1-01-A, PM-1-05, PM-1-07, PM-2-01, PM-3-03, PM-3-03A]

Resolution: the combiner algorithm to be used by a given
<policyStatement> or <policyCombinationStatement> is specified
using a URI.  The algorithm associated with the URI MAY be
descriptive text.

XACML will specify a small set of mandatory-to-implement combiner
algorithms.  Users are free to define other algorithms, although
not all XACML-compliant PDPs will be able to apply them.

The combiner algorithm specifies how the associated <ruleSet> or
<policySet> is combined, and what the outcome will be.
