Sure, as Map provides maximum flexibility. I also agree on the 
simplicity point, but I want to get all ideas in the open, as now is the 
right time for discussion. The point of the previous suggestion was ease 
of use and performance. I guess we should also consider this:

   Object lookup( String role, Object policy );
   Object hasService( String role, Object policy );

It would give us the same flexibility, but allow potentially more 
efficient implementations. Too much of a generalization?
