I am going to call consensus on this one in a week so give me your input
before then....

The basic issue is that the names are sort of reverse what people think
because they are based on post conditions. ACL (and others) already exists
and do it the reverse way. The question is we should we define future stuff
in the "forward" way...

Proposal 1: Stay consistent with ACL - put in note for implementers that
points out this is reverse of what they might expect.

Proposal 2: Switch the way we do it. Leave old document reverse and make new
documents forward. 

Pros/Cons - It is a questions of it having both reverse and forward will be
more or less confusing to implementers that just having it all reverse.
