As Peter noted, the docs are not up to date. In particular the docs
make no mention of the nested to template which occurs in:

So, I started reading the code and found it would have been helpful
to have read something in the docs, say in a "programmer's guide"
or "rationale" section, which mentioned that the policies were "chained"
together. IOW, the conversion policy is "chained" to the checking
policy, and I guess the checking policy is "chained" or, more
concretely, derived from the ownership policy.

Just my $0.02 worth.
