This is what originally occurred to me, but consider the case of a 
single domain server which then upgrades to virtdomains.  Any mailbox 
which uses anyone/anonymous in an ACL is now open to anyone/anonymous in 
ANY domain on the server.  I don't think we can assume that this is what 
the admin intended.

Of course, if the admin sets the defaultdomain to coincide with the 
original single domain, then anyone/anonymous becomes 
anyone at defaultdomain/anonymous at defaultdomain, which follows your logic. 
  I'll have to think about this some more, because I think I'm 
forgetting another issue with inter-domains ACLs.
