Yeah, unfortunately the current UI doesn't allow deleting a policy.  However, the Catalog Service API does expose a DeletePolicy operation.  In addition, there is a DeletePolicy stored procedure you could call from  a SQL Server Management Studio query window.  Both require supplying the guid that identifies the policy.  You can get the guid for the policy by looking up the name of the policy in the ServiceEngine.Names table and retrieving the value of the EntityID column.
