Subject: Issue 89


I have an action item on issue 89.


It's about adding a description element to the <Apply> element, or 
perhaps the expression type.

I propose that we do not add the description element to the expression 
type, since this means that the description will also be available in 
attribute selector/designator, variable references, attribute values and 
perhaps more. This would seem excessive to me. Instead we should add it 
to the <Apply> element directly.

Here is a proposed schema change:

    <xs:element name="Apply" type="xacml:ApplyType" 
    <xs:complexType name="ApplyType">
            <xs:extension base="xacml:ExpressionType">
                    <xs:element ref="xacml:Description" minOccurs="0"/>
                    <xs:element ref="xacml:Expression" minOccurs="0" 
                <xs:attribute name="FunctionId" type="xs:anyURI" 

The Description element is the same one used in the Policy(Set)/Rule:

    <xs:element name="Description" type="xs:string"/>
