Subject: RE: [xacml] FW: SAML AI 0076 - XACML Policy Transport

Just to be clear, if we chose to add a generic "policy" layer as Anne has
proposed, I believe SAML will adopt just that much.

Either way we do it, the XAML Policy Statement and XACML Policy Query will
be a part of the XACML standard, not the SAML standard.
