Sorry for taking so long to respond I was dealing with a computer catastrophe here for the past few days. More inline ...
oh goodie, I have been waiting/lurking for some triplesec material to crop up on this list since talking to david jencks at apachecon :)
in general there seems to be a shortage of actual open source role based access control implementations so any offering in this regard is good for triplesec and apacheds...I am hoping to swap out the rbac implementation in redback (underlying user manglement solution in use for continuum and archiva in mavenlands) with something a little more standard and bullet proof.

I was just reading through this article:
and thought of triplesec. From 50K feet (OK maybe a little lower) it sounds like Triplesec would be the ideal solution for managing (create, read, write, execute, etc.) groups of collaborators working on different documents.
All the users could be stored in ADS, along with the locations of user documents, and the users could then just assign permissions using the role based hierarchy discussed.
This seems to be a hot area for Google Apps, and thus presumably others will follow suit, and if triplesec were positioned as the right solution for this it could be good for all of ADS as a whole.
