Can you add a comment to your ACL spec update work to clarify this? I think 
some text for the two (yes there are two) DAV:privilege definitions making 
it clear that there is only one child would be good. Either that or the 
definition of DAV:privilege is given its own section with appropriate 
description of its content.
