Subject: RE: [xacml] Status of the delegation profile

On the one hand, I can't help but agree with Erik's assessment. When work started on this profile we knew there was no real demand from most organizations, but I for one hoped it would develop over time once use of XACML became more widespread and usecases became more complex.

Clearly this work is not as high priority right now as other current Profiles, such as the REST, JSON and ALFA work. Even in terms of Steven's time, I would rather see him wrap up Related & Nested before tackling this.

On the other hand, given the work put into this I would like to bring it to a point of usefulness. I expect the world to need this eventually and I would like to have it ready to go. I also have some interest in using it in conjunction with OAuth.

Therefore I propose to at least resolve the issues raised by Steven and me and if we achieve some consensus about changes, I will act as Editor. I hope to have the help of Erik and Steven (and everybody else) to get the details right.
