The ACL spec does not associate a principal URL with an authenticated
user, and therefore a principal URL is not in general available.
Geoff, could you explain what this sentence means?  Are you saying a server
can't necessarily map an authenticated user to a principal URL.  But it can
(and actually must be able to) check if a *given* principal URL includes a
given authenticated user?

Please elaborate.
