The way this works at boot is already a nasty hack.  It does policy
checking in the scheduler, and then has to re-do some policy checking at
launch time on the compute node.  I'm afraid of making this any worse.
In any case, it's probably better to discuss this in the context of a
more detailed design proposal.
