[openstack-dev] [Group-Based-Policy] Use cases for External Policy chains

As a follow up on [0] I have a question for the community.
There are multiple use cases for a PTG *providing* a ServiceChain which is
*consumed* by an External Policy (think about LB/FW/IDS and so forth).
However, given the current set of services we support, I don't see any use
case for having the External Policy as the provider on a PRS with a chain.

Am I missing something? And if not, how should we manage a REDIRECT action
provided by an External Policy? We could either ignore, validate or treat
that particular action just like a normal ALLOW.

Thanks for your feedbacks,
