I think the construct we need to solve the problem already exists purely in the script-layer:

    type TriggerFunc: function(n: Notice::Info): bool;
    global Notice::policy: vector of set[TriggerFunc];

I think that the issue is it being cumbersome to manipulate/redef?  So we're working around that with the new proposal, but maybe we can do more to make redefining something like that syntactically clean and easy?
