You can solve this problem by having your policy references point to a URI that
references the "current" policy.  Section 4.3.4 of the Policy Framework states:
"The IRI included in the retrieved policy expression, if any, MAY be different
than the IRI used to retrieve the policy expression."  

For example, you could have policy reference like this:

<wsp:PolicyReference URI="urn:currentPolicy" />

That points to a policy like this:

<wsp:Policy Name="urn:myUpdatedPolicy" >
...
</wsp:Policy>

How you resolve external policy references is implementation specific, which
allows you to version the policy independently of the URI used to reference the
policy.
