Not following the details, all I would ask ("all", he says) is that a complete description of the new semantics be available for review, and should be published along with the changes. Otherwise I fear the community has no real way of reviewing the actual semantics against the intended semantics.

One basis we have for such documentation could be the document that Doug Robinson contributed in dev@ thread "Subversion AuthZ Wildcards" on 2017-02-27 [1]. AFAIK it was the best or only documentation we had of the new semantics.

Might you or anyone else be prepared to do that?
