Yes, and as I said in a previous message, that may be worthwhile since we
haven't got a lot of real world cases where there is a need for
inter-policy communication between these two.
But it comes at a cost; the design of the framework is slightly more
complicated, and user written policies which have some special need to
communicate with each other can't do so.
