```John,

OK, now that I understand the union, how should we handle the
upper bound applied to the insteadOf field?  As it's written
right now, the list of names is bounded by ub-insteadOf, with
a value of 16 decimal.  Suppose the union of the two lists
produces a list with more than 16 elements.  What gets
truncated?

```Now I need to understand something about the intended union of the
policies.  Consider this case:

A's policy is insteadOf, and B's policy is inAdditionTo.  The table
says the union is insteadOf(A+B).  Does this mean the effective policy
is the union of A's insteadOf names and B's inAdditionTo names to yield
names available, but the table entry makes it look like there should be
insteadOf names for B.
