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

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
insteadOf(insteadOf(A) + inAdditionTo(B))? I know there aren't any other
names available, but the table entry makes it look like there should be
insteadOf names for B.
