Subject: Re: [xacml] Cross references?
The issue I have is that some of the profiles cross reference each other in a circular manner, so it's hard for me to make the right references before it gets handed over to you.
In particular, what happens when we go to OASIS standard with circular cross references? The Multiple Decision profile references the Hierarchical profile because some of the schemes in the Multiple Decision profile are based on hierarchies. The Hieararchical profile in turn references the multiple profile because it says that hierarchies are useful for some kinds of multiple requests, and to say that it is assumed that any multiple decision process has already been done, which the individual hierarchical decision is processed.
It wasn't a problem previously because we would go to OS with a bundle of profiles together, so they would be OS at the same time. However, if I understand it right, now each document has its own track, so that raises the question of in which order the cross references get updated and also what happens if you edit it assuming that they both make OS, but then one of them doesn't.
Can we handle these kind of references, or should I edit out the reference to multiple from the hierarchical, since it's not strictly needed for the technical content to still work?
