I've never seen an MIT KDC pre-install any policies other than default,
but I guess I haven't ever looked that closely.

Anyway, policies are trivial in an MIT KDC.  They only have five
parameters, all of which are fairly obvious.  You can pretty trivially
create whatever policy you need.  I don't think the pre-installed policies
are really doing anything that useful for you.
