As part of this I needed to do some policy manipulation supported by the EndpointPolicyImpl
class but not in the EndpointPolicy interface (which also required PolicyEngineImpl rather
than PolicyEngine, and the standard EffectivePolicyImpl rather than a private EffectivePolicyImpl).
Anyone see a problem with this? Seems like bad form to be using the Impls outside the module,
but it saves a lot of copy/paste code.
> Agreed.   Looks like bad form.  I'd much rather see additional methods added to the interfaces
that may be required and flip as many params to just be the interface and not the impl.  (and
maybe cast to the impl inside the private methods or similar if really required.

Great, and thanks for your changes to EffectivePolicyImpl to make this 
more usable. I'll add the initialize() method I was using to the 
EffectivePolicy interface so I can avoid using the Impl directly.
