Atomic Policy Groups

Both Chromium and Google Chrome have some groups of policies that depend on each other to provide control over a feature. These sets are represented by the following policy groups. Given that policies can have multiple sources, only values coming from the highest priority source will be applied. Values coming from a lower priority source in the same group will be ignored. The order of priority is defined in https://support.google.com/chrome/a/?p=policy_order.
