Subject: FW: [xacml-comment] Incomplete definition of the ipAddress-is-in and dnsName-is-in functions

My initial thought is that it would be better to define equality
functions for these types, even if they might not be completely
determinate.  I'm not familiar with these types so I don't know what
problems there might be.  But as a policy writer I appreciate having the
type-is-in functions available.

Thanks for spotting. I agree, the identifiers should be removed.

Best regards,
