Info: this looks very much like what the Linux Debian Tomcat package is doing : splitting

up "catalina.policy" into chunks stored in /etc/tomcat/policy.d/*, which are then 
re-combined into "catalina.policy" by the package's Tomcat startup script just before 
launching the JVM.

Practically speaking, it is not a bad idea. catalina.policy as one big chunk is not very 
easy to read or edit.
