It would be helpful if these rules and policies were integrated directly into the CoC (or at the very least referenced directly in the CoC) so that players would not have to take their own intiative to seek out a forum post.

The Terms of Service (which a player must read and accept when launching the game for the first time) explicitly mention and link to the Code of Conduct, so it seems to me like it would make sense for the Code of Conduct to explicitly mention and link to the Official Roleplaying Rules and Policy, too.
Players must accept the Terms of Service. Nothing in the world forces players to read the Terms of Service.
