Right, but you have to keep in mind that the person working on the
project might not be the same one managing the machines, and that the
latter shouldn't have to rely on the former getting the configuration
just right to ensure that their desired usage policy is enforced.
Configuration mistakes on the project's side should result in failed
jobs, not usage policy violations.
