Obviously care might need to be taken prior to discarding a policy just in case services have been provided based on it.  And what the implications might be on operations.

I'm assuming that from a policy point of view this would first be an amendment in the PDP

True but the operative word being most.  However we must assume that one might be an exception so a need to plug the potential hole in anticipation.
