That depends on whether `service` is supposed to be a manual-use-only
tool.  If it's supposed to be used programmatically as well, it definitely
should honor the policy.  Otherwise, it's not so clear.  But I think even
in that case it should honor the policy (printing an error message if
necessary), and allow an "-f" (force) switch to override it.
