That's obvious, since they manage the same event. Most of the
policies that compose a compound component will "comunicate" though
that component. Let's say that policies are communicating iff policy
A implementation uses members of Policy B or vice versa, cause namely
presence/absence of such 'direct' communication is one of the most
important issues discussed.

policies in above terms we should be able to eliminate direct
