Subject: Re: [xacml] WSPL - XACML gap analysis

There are several ways in which this falls under our charter.

"The XACML Technical Committee will define a core XML schema for representing
 authorization and entitlement policies, also called XACML."

  The policy for what types of communication are allowed between a web services
  consumer and server is a type of authorization and entitlement policy: e.g. client
  is only authorized to use strong crypto, response is authorized only if it
  uses X or Y formats, Clients are entitled to use DSA or RSA, etc.

"Extensibility: XACML core schema is extensible for as yet unknown features"

  We are demonstrating how the core schema can be extended for these new features.

"Interoperability: The XACML Technical Committee will define interoperability of 
XACML core schema with other standards."

  We are doing the investigations needed to define how XACML will interoperate 
  with web services standards that (everyone hopes) will emerge.
