Thanks for your explanation.
I think  the implement in nova maybe  is  a good reference.

I have filed it to a blueprint.

Seems like the right direction. Don't know why they were separate to begin

Nova has the same issue so its probably just historical. I'm not familiar with 
the cinder policy files, but for
Nova the default policy settings are different for the real policy file versus 
the one used for the unittests
and the unittests rely on this. So there's likely there will need to be some 
cleanup required to use just one policy file
and may complicate the unittests a bit more. But overall sounds like a good 
idea just to have one policy file.
