> Currently , it is possible to define a ACL (user and groups) for a service. To temporarily
remove authorization for a set of users, administrator needs to remove the users from the
specific group and this may be a lengthy process ( update ldap groups, flush caches on machines).
>  If there is a facility to define a negative ACL for services, then administrator can
disable users by specifying the users in negative ACL. In other words, one can specify a whitelist
of users and groups as well as a blacklist of users and groups. 
> One can also specify a default blacklist to disable the users from accessing any service.
