I also saw there is at least 3 categories of... i dont know :-)
Think i saw a scheme of those in the past.

law, policy, plan

a plan is something that should be executed.
a law is a rule that governs what kind of actions can be executed legally
and which cannot.

what's a policy??? is it something like an aspect of a "vision statement"
or "idea" ???
I've read some specific examples but could not infere what kind of general
category in a holistic scheme a policy should represent...
