Hmm... I was merely suggesting the general idea; it is bad practice to
import keys that do not meet the policy, on the other hand there are
always user who - for some reason or other - need to do this.

What if, for instance, you want to move a zone to a shared-key policy
and the new policies requires bigger keys? What would that use case look
like (and which requirements does that translate to)?
