Configuration policies - nested groups

I am really enjoying the ability to apply policies to LDAP groups, however I noticed that they do not apply to nested groups.  For instance, there might be a group that contains all members of a certain group, and then that group might then be a member of a larger organizational group.

I'd like to avoid a best practices discussion, as I am not a member of my organization's server support team.  However, it would be helpful for me, as the gateway administrator, if a policy applied to the high level group applied to all nested groups as well.  I understand that this could cause problems for folks who prefer to specifically apply policy to individual groups, so perhaps an option to toggle nested groups on/off would be a suitable approach.
