I guess I was a little ambiguous.

The requirements/goals for WebDAV-ACL should give an idea about
what Subversion needs (I got the feeling that a part of the
discussion was to determine that) and even more insight can be
found in the RFC.

Disclaimer: it is a long time since I read the cited documents,
but I thought I would mention them so that not the proverbial
wheel is reinvented.
