Is the policy system informed in some way of the changed attribute
and especially of the setting of the exemption bit for the attribute?
Or does this rely on human intervention for notification.

Also, it seems that it should be possible to reset the exemption bit
either manually or via a policy and thus put the attribute back under
policy control without having to actually go and manually change it
