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/.
