        I am opposed to bloating the policy with dictum that are
 unnecessary, but I see your point about the API. The API is essentially
 the watch file, and we already specify that in the policy. DEHS (as
 mentioned in policy) uses that file;p there is no need to add stuff
 into policy that we already have.
