One of the targets in 3.0 is to offer WikiFarms, which means that  
there needs to be a policy-per-farm and policy-per-wiki (with the  
latter available as something that admins themselves may edit without  
dropping to shell access).

Not sure how this really relates to JVM-wide policies.  I don't  
particularly like them myself.  They need extra care to even make the  
unit tests run...
