Or any language at all, except where you had enumerated or otherwise
expressed the set of "whom I love" or "they terminate". This would likely
be in other certificates, and you have the PolicyMaker option to merge them.
This is, of course, a very different thing from chains from issuer to subject,
but a combination of privileges to yield another implied privilege, subject
to a stated policy (in another cert, most likely). This is among the things
I found so wonderful about PolicyMaker.
