Because this IDS is part of the audit system.

Then you surely have duplicate rules controlled by 2 systems. The first rule 
in the audit.rules file is -D which would delete not only the audit event 
rules for archival purposes, but any IDS placed rules. There is not a simple 
way of deleting the rules placed by auditctl vs the ones placed by the IDS. 
The IDS system would also need to be prodded to reload its set of rules 
again.

I think it would be more complicated going down this path for a number of 
reasons.
