Be able to rollout activities based on the union (common partners) of multiple attributes

Currently, when rolling out an activity, you have the option to do so using groups, attributes or by selecting individual partners.  If you choose attributes, you can specify multiple attributes upon which to invite partners but the behavior is that all the partners which have at least one of those attributes are included.  It is a logical OR situation, not a logical AND. 

It would be nice to have the option to make it a logical AND scenario, a union based on the attributes.  For example, if the attribute types Region and Protocol were used, we would want to be able to rollout this activity to those partners who are in the Western region AND who use the SFTP protocol.

How will this idea be used?

Having the option to specify that the attributes are treated as a logical AND would allow us to better target the partners we want to rollout an activity to, without having to create attributes whose values are combinations of the attributes we want.  E.g. being able to use two attributes to specify region (e.g. Western) and protocol (e.g. SFTP) instead of having one attribute which specifies both region and protocol (e.g. Western SFTP).
