I had a bit of a think about this overnight (since I'll be running in
this scenario). If there are dbs that shouldn't share users, perhaps
you could prefix the role with the appname. ie: { roles:
["myapp1:editor"] }. Then once there are reader ACLs, you could test
that the user included roles with the appropriate prefix.

Now that I've given some more thought to this problem, I've come to
the conclusion that if I implement my roles properly reader ACLs can
handle every case that I've been able to come up with.
