New issue 1157: Federation: 4.3: Combining Policies - Reword "combine" as "merge" where appropriate?

Vladimir Dzhuvinov:

In the section describing the processing of policy metadata from entities in a trust chain:

I’d like to propose a change in wording - to say “merge” instead of “combine” where the parameters of two operations of the same type, e.g. `subset_of` , are taken to produce a single one.

```
"subset_of": ["openid", "eduperson", "phone"]
```

\+

```
"subset_of": ["openid", "eduperson", "address"]
```

=>

```
"subset_of": ["openid", "eduperson"]
```

And leave “combine” as it is to mean collection of policies of different types.
