  • Summary:

    Summary: Semantics of the Mechanism Policy is not defined well.
    There are different semantics if it is applied to a
    client object reference than to a server object reference.

    On the server side, the mechanism list stipulates which
    mechanisms can be used to handle the requests. This may
    stipulate which mechanisms are advertised in the IOR.

    However, since there is an order, and order preference should
    be specified. If a client wishes to invoke on said object and
    two mechanisms support the requested features, the first one
    that does so in the IOR should be said to be selected.

    To support multiple mechanisms on the client side, one would
    have to inquire which one was used and in which order to
    use them. This can also be implied by the order of the list.

    However, the semantics of such should be specified.
