If a node has not cron (or equivalent) installed, then the uuid or init script are not restored
Most of vagrant box don't have any kind of cron, and it is possible that people in the real world as wel
We rely on cron mechanism to restore the uuid and init script after an error; if cron isn't there, then the node (or policy server) stays in a sort of limbo
It would be cool to have a dependency to cron, cronie, or whatever gives cron.
What do you think of it ?

There is no cron metapackage in RPM based systems. We can depend on "cron" on SuSE and "crontabs" on RH based systems (cf. http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:CronFiles#Cron_Job_Files_Packaging)
