This is a natural progression, since the CGICT Policy Framework and Governance is nearing completion. The standardisations of policies for ICT, I would totally agree with. However, while the basic core of any policy is the same, they should include the flexibility to suit the needs of the different levels of government, i.e. Metros, District, Local, etc.
