Interesting -- would you consider that control via authentication of 
the resource is a meta-related form of Content Centric Networking 
(CCN) [1] or Named Data Networking [2] ?

I looked through the WebAccesControl Implementation and Related links, 
and saw no mention of the relationship, but just in case you haven't 
come across this I'll provide a bit of background (that seems 
unlikely, but anway...)

Some published rationales (ie, by Van Jacobson, who is now working at 
PARC) [5,6] made the assertion that the problems of ineffective web 
publishing and money transfer and security and scalability would 
remain essentially insoluble until a CCN or NDN system is implemented 
throughout the Internet.

I've been watching with interest the work of PARC on this [5], and 
they recently released a "CCN lite" [6] of CCNx, which a group of 
programmers have been working on for several years, and apparently 
across both CCN and NDN there's a large academic support system and 
some government support money involved.
