Subject: Re: [xacml] URI match function

I am proposing that /a/b/* should not match /a/b/c/d that seems
to be implied by Tim's text.
I think /a/b/* should be wild card of /a/b/somenode e.g. /a/b/c
and /a/b/d. "Somenode" should not be a structure that includes
two or more nodes of child-parent relation like c/d.

just to make sure i understand, you are basically proposing that /a/b*
would be
used to match /a/b/ and not /a/b/* would not. is in other words, /* does
match / is this correct?
