InformationPolicy - content types - challenges

The excellent information policy example described by Ton Stegeman here is an excellent starting point for learning more about SharePoint 2007 Information Policies. The example given works like a dream.

However - there is a challenge that I have not yet managed to overcome. When associating the informatonpolicy with a content type within a document library it works just fine.

But when I create a site content type and then create a new document library and add the site content type (with the information policy associated) to the document library nothing works :-(

When inspecting the details it turns out that no event receivers are associated with the content type found on the document library.

I was assuming that once an information policy is associated it would be enforced in all locations. This assumption is not correct.

Did you ever figure this out, this missing piece is driving me crazy at the moment.
