A thread about the <include> option in Policy in another forum made me
think about this question.

I knew about include, but did not realize it has been in the UI for
years. I find I learn something new all the time.

I was wondering if there was some silly IDM/Designer'isms that you were
surprised when you figured out?

I tried to cover some of these things to jump start folk, in a series of
articles:

But that focus was on things you need to know or mistakes commonly made.

Here I am wondering if you found something in the UI, or in Designer, or
in how tokens work, that you were suprised, or did not know.

I hope that makes sense. I am curious to see what people come up with.

I will offer the <include> option (upper right of a Policy editor, the
first icon offers a drop down with Add policy before/after, add
Condition group before/after, etc. One of them in Add Include
before/after) that allows you to link in a policy in the midst of a policy.

Alas, only between rules, not within a rule, so not a good
function/procedure replacement, but closer than nothing.

Let me know if you have any good examples, I suspect this could be
interesting, since everyone else will see things different.
