Another question somewhat related to attachment point. Why is
acl-type part of the list key?

I think compound keys are really quite clunky and should be
avoided if possible. In this case I really don't see why acl-type
needs to be part of the list key.

For the list of ACLs it means that the acl-name needs to be
unique instead of the combination of the type and name. This
seems rather uncontroversial to me.

Is it because we want to have constraints on the acl-type? ISTM
that we can apply such constraints anyway.

I just don't understand why it's part of the list key. Can it
please be removed?
