What type of policy are you referring to? A QoS policy? A "routing  
policy-options" policy? Or something else? I don't see how this could  

This does bring up one other thing. SAM makes sure that the many  
numbers that the CLI requires are selected appropriately. For example,  
service numbers at both ends of a service have to match. Your scripts  
will have to ensure these rules are followed. However, this is nothing  
new over what you have to do if you configure the routers by hand.
