Creative types will almost always be able to find the'20%' time, regardless of policy. Having such a policy, official or otherwise simply allows slackers to slack even more, and the creators will continue to do what they have been doing all along. While there's a certain amount of trust/responsibility required from Da Management, this is where good immediate-supervisors (aka. middle management) actually have jobs: protect your underlings from the boring drudgery of policy and give them the tools to get things done, which may mean turning a blind eye when they are working on a project which doesn't seem to have a direct bearing on the current schedule of tasks.
