I think that the use of ACL would defeat the point of having a wiki
(which is that anyone can edit the content). Having ACL on part of a
document could help to avoid producing bad quality documents (ACL on the
main document, but no ACL on a comment section). This is why mediawiki
has a comment page which each wiki page. However, I don't think that
moinmoin support such a setup.
