When you say, a “string comparison”, you mean a comparison for equality,
I guess. Does XSLT offer at all the concept of strcmp()? I think that
alone would be preferable if it’s not a full-fledged version comparison
check: the Policy version numbers are simple enough that it should work,
and it can be deactivated if this statement stops being true at some
point in the future.

Only, I don’t know if strcmp() is available or not. :-)
