   If we just switch the AuthzMergeRules default state to Off, and make
On mean AND, that would be a great start.  Then maybe we can revisit
and take a look at what breaks if the within-block merging is AND too;
if it breaks too much stuff, maybe it needs to stay OR.  Right now
I can't say I have an informed opinion on that.  Thanks again for working
through this stuff,
