I believe the hack to make a policy about directed editing and employees,
and then in an example declare experienced freelancers (i.e. people that
are paid but not working according to precise orders) to "likely be both
director and directee at the same time", does (at least with the current
wording) not work, because the same person cannot be a "third party" as
required in a) and b) for making the policy apply.
Generally, I think there are 2 different aspects, one is the mapper being
paid, the other is him taking orders (and possibly not being very
experienced hence relying on instructions by the director), and if the
policy focuses on the aspect of director and directee, we should have a
different policy to cater explicitly for paid mapping rather than creating
a weird construction of director and directee in the same person, and only
in an example.
