The problem is that the surveys are not stored as files but are dynamically generated.  There are practically thousands of different URLs which look something like this:
http://www.foreseeresults.com/survey/StandardTemplate5.jsp?pid=TESTEQrABfBtH9A7GnYHqZ4h0A%3D%3D&mid=TESTDmfDolvf024OKsDeocA%3D%3D&width=420&height=500&alt_width=580&alt_height=500&omb=1505-0186

The urls are being build on the fly.  Apache server does not know the URL so it won't be able to capture it.

You can have a single policy reference file that includes multiple 
POLICY-REF elements. Each POLICY-REF element associates a specific URL 
(or sets of URLs) with a policy. So, assuming your surveys each have a 
unique URL, you should be able to apply a separate policy to each one.
