In the PLASMA Trust Processing specification, both the following "data" XACML attribute categories are used (for the same purpose, I believe):

<Attributes Category="urn:ietf:plasma:attribute-category:data">

<Attributes Category="urn:oasis:names:tc:xacml:3.0:attribute-category:data">

In the latest XACML specification [1], there is no "urn:oasis:names:tc:xacml:3.0:attribute-category:data" category (and I do not recall there ever has been), hence I believe it is necessary that PLASMA use "urn:ietf:plasma:attribute-category:data" where it is using the (non-existent) OASIS-namespaced one.
