Folks, I believe that we have consensus on this topic even though my
original postings may not have been clear.

The consensus is that we should not attempt to deal with this in the managed
systems at all for all the previously stated reasons.  I agree. If a manager
wants to do something fancy when deleting a policy that is outside the scope
of the current work.

All agreed?
