I don't think there is any such document. Right now you can't distribute
policy anyway:

- The binary policy modules framework isn't fully deployed yet, or at
  least that's the impression I got last time I talked to the author

- There are no formal policy compatibility ... er ... policies, between
  distributions as far as I'm aware. So the meaning of a given bit of
  policy might change depending on the distributions specific

What exactly are your goals? Do you want to lock down your own program or
is this more about compatibility? 

I'm pretty interested in letting Linux software developers ship policy as
part of their own binary packages to allow for better lockdown/least priv
on systems that support it but I don't think the technology is there yet.
