Everything implemented internally should make this work.  There is one thing I'm wondering though.  In any of your scripts you're running locally, are you doing…

redef Notice::policy = { … };

Instead of…

redef Notice::policy += { … };

It's a small difference, but causes a big change because those shortcuts (like ignored_types) are basically just pre-implemented  notice policy items which you are blowing away if you do full set assignment instead of adding items to the set.  I'll start trying to think of way to make that more resilient to this too.  This fragility is the one thing I don't like about those pre-implemented policy items.
