My recollection is that we decided that we probably did not need
MajorVersion, MinorVersion, AssertionID, Conditions, or Advice for XACML (it
seems highly unlikely that anyone would write a rule/policy in which an
attribute was qualified by a MinorVersion or an Advice element, whereas it
is certainly possible that someone would want to qualify an attribute by
Issuer). So, making them more compact is certainly one goal.
However, given that we're defining the "Holder" schema, we do have the
freedom to make other changes if we want (e.g., not using the NameQualifier
and Format attributes). My preference is not to make such changes lightly
(i.e., unless it seems critically important), but we do have this freedom...
