If I apply a custom policy to a Document Library, I can no longer save that site as a template - any ideas why?

Incase it's relevant, I'm defining a label "Version: {Version}" which I later use to display the SP version number in a Word Doc (via Quick parts)

This was an issue in SP 2010 RTM. It is now possible since the October 2010 CU, however you may still find problems.

Some users have reported that the document library and/or policy settings in saved templates are corrupt when using the October and December 2010 CUs.
