I'm gonna take a wild guess that they didn't ask you before assigning
the terms "Capabilities" and "Policies."

<sigh> Nobody ever asks the tech writer nothin' till it's too late.

I, on the other hand, use "enable" and "allow" frequently in tech
writing.

The products that I document have major functional attributes controlled
by "Capabilities" and "Policies".

In our world:

Capabilities come as factory presets, and they enable certain
characteristics and features (some of which might be mutually
exclusive).

Policies individually allow or disallow the capabilities that have been
enabled, and are set by the customer to fine-tune the functional scope
of the product when it is deployed.
