In this case it would seem to me that a ShutDown method should be added
to the derived singleton, and called appropriately. Adding a policy to
handle this seems unnecessary and redundant, because at most it could
only enforce that the singleton have the ShutDown method. Only the
derived singleton knows exactly what ShutDown entails, and only classes
that refer to that specific type of singleton could possibly know when
it would be appropriate to make that function call.
