Why create other policy map when only once policy map can be used on any interfaces? Why not just use the default policy and add to it? I am trying to understand the application layer inspection and the MPF.

The default policy will not give you many options due to the "match default-inspection-traffic" in the default class map.

At the end of it the number of policy maps or usuage or default policy map with additions really depends on user and his/her requirement.

I understand that but because only one policy map can be applied per interface, what will happen to the default global policy?
