I don't immediately see why the resolver management scheme
has to be written up in policy.  It concerns only a small
set of packages.  The APM subsystem uses a similar scheme
(/etc/apm/apmd_proxy, /etc/apm/event.d, etc.) but is nowhere
mentioned in policy.

Eventually, however, there will have to be policy that
forbids routinely writing to files in /etc/.

And there will have to be a FHS change to allow for /run/.
