          At the moment the access control section contains David Pitfield's proposal, as
          an "example", but does not reference any further external documentation. I
          suggest that we simply extract John Newton's comment describing the iECM
          proposal and publish that as a referenced external document, making it
          officially part of RC5.

          I will use John Newton's essay/comment as an auxiliary document to the RC5 spec
          and reference it from the spec. Though this does not resolve the AC issue itself
          I will mark this issue as resolved for RC5 since the task of producing the
          drafts is done.

          For further discussion we should probably open more specifc issues within AC.

          Sorry for not getting this done prior to going on vacation.

          I have updated the Access Control Proposal to reflect the discussions that we
          have had so far. I used David Pitfield's document as a basis, but extended the
          Access Control Manager to support the abstract policy management and the access
          control entries.

          I have removed the access control policy and access control entry node types
          since there is no way to know how these will be implemented nor how they would
          be mapped to nodes. I have used the Access Control Manager to set the policies
          and entries as pattern to mirror the get policies on the manager pattern that
          David used in the original proposal.
