You're right, this is a circular definition and a bug in the policy
generator. This behavior was intended to address , but when the
deprecated rule name matches the current rule name it creates this
nonsense policy. Since the bug doesn't apply in this case, we can just
drop the unnecessary alias. Lance pushed a fix in  that should make
this work sanely again.
Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
