It's still possible to isntall policykit.  I think maybe it's for third
party support.  All of ubuntu's hal policies have been ported to
policykit-1, but I suppose it's entirely possible for a third party app
or service to have an old policykit profile, in which case, you would
use the old policykit packages to benefit from it.

In any case, as far as Ubuntu install is concerned,
policykit-gnome-administration no longer does anything just for you..
just a red herring for upgraders.
