As Geoffrey says, put this on the Publisher Command Transform instead.
While you're at it, you should also add the nsimAssignments attribute to
the password policy object using the DN of the current object, so that it
all looks right later in the management utilities.

Or define a reciprocal attribute mapping between the two... Which
happens to be slower since, at the time you build this, you happen to
know both DN's in hand and can handle them direct.

When reciprocal attribute mapping occurs post Command transform it must
query twice I think. So performance wise, better not to rely on it in
this case.
