Just the label of acl:agentClass is wrong, but as I is understand the
intension for the property acl:agentClass is the same as for the class
foaf:Group. So the acl:agent property with the foaf:Agent range could
cover both cases.

TAC for example is already based on WAC, but I agree that this needs
more time and implementation experience. For example regular expression
based filters or a predicate filter for a whole namespaces could make
sense. On the other hand if we merge them now, later we wouldn't have to
deal with two ontologies in our code.
