Not that I know of - but I don't think we need one as support for 
additional policies should be pluggable, i.e. become available by 
registering AssertionBuilderFactories (which would happen by simply 
adding stuff to the classpath)?

Celtix did this - you could have a policy with an RMAssertion attached 
to a wsdl element - and a property of the same type (RMAssertion) in the 
endpoint configuration bean - the latter superseding the former.
Conversely, the data types used for http and jms configuration may 
become assertions (understood only by CXF of course).
One of the benefits of a policy framework is that is makes interceptor 
chain configuration a lot easier.
