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.
