Document-specified access controls...

Is there any way currently to specify access controls from the
served document's headers? If not, would anyone be horribly
opposed to my investigating adding something like the ``Cache-
control: community='' stuff in the HTTP/1.1 draft, but that
specified an ACL the client must match to retrieve the document?
(See the 13 March HTTP/1.1 draft, pages 97-8, for a discussion
of Cache-control extensions.)

I've set up squid as an httpd accelerator, and I'd like authors
to be able to restrict documents to a local network. So far,
this is the best idea I've had. If someone has a better one,
I'd love to know.
