Subject: RE: RE: [xacml] another small time/date issue

If I understand the block diagram in the specification correctly it is
PIP that is responsible for all and any of the attributes.  The source
of this
Information, except for the request context is not specified and left to
the implementation..

It already is. The PDP must supply current time/date
values if they're not included in a request. Unlike
other attributes, these values must always be
available, so in practice most people will use a PDP
that knows how to provide this data directly. This
is why I wanted to see some clarifiaction.
