Nope. Tools are intended to manage their own policy settings.

I wouldn't add this to the "required" interface (in
CMFCore.interfaces.portal_membership), as it represents an API which may
not be present on some implementations of the tool. The "correct"
location for this would be in CMFDefault.interfaces.portal_membership,
which would then be like:
from Products.CMFCore.interfaces.portal_membership \
import MembershipTool as BaseTool
class MembershipTool( BaseTool ):
""" Declare product-specific APIs for CMFDefault's tool.
# your method declarations here; I would append 'Name' to
# the accessor / mutator, to clarify that what will be returned
# is the name of the folder, not the folder object itself.

Unless what someone wants is a tool which doesn't allow TTW
modification! Derived implementations of an interface aren't "plug
compatible" if they need to "cancel" an API defined in the base.
