Subject: [xacml] all-of-any/any-of-all

In a conversation over the weekend, I realized that the english text used in
the specification for the all-of-any and any-of-all functions is at best
confusing and at worst incorrect. Specifically, the problem is with the word
"collectively" which implies that all values from the "all" bag must be
evaluated against the same value from the "any" bag. I'm also not sure the
description for using the and function (in
all-of-any) or the or function (in any-of-all) is correct. I pinged Polar
about this, and he (I think) agreed that the text could use some tweaking.

Would someone like to agree or disagree on this point? Is it just me? Can
someone explain to me how the text about using and/or (the 5th sentence of
the 2nd paragraph in both sections) makes sense? If anyone else agrees that
this needs work then I'll propose some alternate text.
