Yes, the dnssec-policy defines or refers to a name that is a string, 
which may be a quoted or unquoted string.

Some additional information on the subject: When it comes to strings, 
the named.conf parser expects some options to be quoted strings (usually 
file paths), some options to be unquoted strings (things like algorithm 
and class names), and some options to be just strings (usually names).
