Thanks for sending out the WebDAV ACLs spec.
I do think we need to keep in mind that cosmo is intended to be a
multi-format sharing server, and solving the problem in a way that
allows for other formats to access the data and in some cases change
permissions without managing multiple access properties for different
formats on the same resource.
My suggestion would be to implement a traditional user/group/world
permissions scheme on resources in the repository. Then to expose
those permissions via ACLs and other formats where applicable, but in
many cases I think just using traditional authentication and honoring
the permissions would be enough for most of our use cases.
