These questions suggest that you aren't familiar with hal policy at all.
The only interesting question in this discussion is.. can it be made it easy.
I'm sure it can be... we just have to get there. And the first step in
getting there is for everyone who really cares about this sort of
stuff make a real effort at understanding how to write hal
policy..including acl related polcy.  Instead of just pissing and
moaning about it because they haven't made an effort to understand it.

And since I always endeavor to practice what I preach, I've been
trying to write acl policy to get a specialized usb device that I own
working as the console owner and I'm still not doing it correctly.  I
have the hal matching rules right, I know my policy is matching the
device. What it's not doing is setting up the acls.  And I'm having a
real hard time troubleshooting what is actually happening.
