Policy routing overrides all IGPs. That's what its for. You can think of
it as glorified static routing, it has the same limitations as static
routes do (local to router, leads to black-holing, etc) but is not limited
to destination based forwarding. There is no way to redistribute a policy
route into an IGP.
