It would be nice if we could have acls that could be re-used by many people.
EG:
1. an acl that says that all documents whose acl point to it are public.
2. an acl that says that all documents whose acls point to it are visible only to its creator
- ...

Perhaps this could be done like the following

a. create a class of all documents whose acls point to a document.
  class this 

@prefix : <http://www.w3.org/ns/auth/acl#> .
@prefix foaf: <http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/> .

:WorldReadable :accessToClass :DocumentsWhoseACLPointsToHere;
    :agentClass foaf:Agent;
    :mode :Read .
    
This is not quite right, but it could be nice to have a few of the main use cases
covered like this. What do you think?
