As much as I would like to have a "tight scope" for this WG, I have to
observe that access control (or more like lack thereof) has often been a
problem in Semantic Web/Linked Data projects I have been involved in.
Particularly fine-grained access control of Semantic Web data.

I fear that deeming access control strictly "out of scope" and hoping that
some (so far unspecified) liaison with other groups to solve this problem
will only result in the issue not being seen as important enough.

My $0.02.
