I agree. We've already identified a couple of subcomponents: policy distribution and (server side?) versioning semantics.

I maintain, however, that no meaningful policy administration is possible without CRUD operations on policies. Since policy CRUD will always be necessary and is pretty straightforward, I don't think we have to postpone the policy administration part of the REST profile.

Once we have identified more subcomponents, we can add those to later versions of the REST profile.
