Regarding the recent public-ldp-wg post on this topic [1]:

The proposed WebAccessControl [2] method will not meet modern enterprise
requirements for fine-grained access control of complex multi-faceted
resources in a diverse user community.

Some type of rule-based system is required, such as XACML [3]. XACML
itself, however, does not have a standard web-readiness profile. But its
underlying access control model has many advantages over ACL or
role-based systems (which WebAccessControl appears to be based on).

See [4] for an earlier post I made during the scope discussion of LDP
WG.
