I fully agree with Iain in that location services are one of the key  
fields to apply the UMA results. Grear
scenario, Eve!

Just let me make a remark about the issue on policy expression from SP  
to AM, in the same direction as my
quote to Maciej comments...

As long as this is required to be performed by the AM to a syntax  
level (matching policy identifiers) I see
it as an interesting addition. But we should avoid the temptation of  
going further into making AM
semantic-aware if we want to stick to the KISS principle.
