true, we are also considering to contribute a similar or
the same acl mechanism not only for jackrabbit but as a possible
example model for a future jcr mechanism. so any input would be highly
appreciated. feel free to download crx and play with it.

agreed, the reason why it was excluded from jcr 1.0 was simply 
to slim down the spec and be able to drive to consensus quicker. 
maybe we can shoot to include something like that in jcr 1.1
