Subject: url-subtree-match

based on the last con call here is my idea on matching urls. i see the 
url-subtree-match function as basically a concatenation of existing XACML 
functions. thus, the definition becomes:


This function takes two arguments, the first of type 

the second of type http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#string

and SHALL return an http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#boolean.

The function SHALL return "True" if all of the following conditions hold. 
Otherwise, it SHALL return "False.

1. The first argument--representing the host portion of the resource--is
using urn:oasis:names:tc:xacml:1.0:function:anyURI-equal.

2. The second argument--representing a subset of the host resources--is
using urn:oasis:names:tc:xacml:1.0:function:regexp-string-match

3. Together, the first and second arguments comprise the complete URL being



first argument: http://foo.com
second argument: /abc/123

Note: For this to work (actually for ANY url matching syntax to work) all 
relational URI refernces must be fully expanded to the FQDN for evaluation 
(including protocol).

i think this provides a balance between the 'ugliness' and power of regex
the issues surrounding creating our own matching syntax. anyway, i am
tossing it 
out for discussion.
