ACLs and the rationale behind removing realms have been discussed on
this list, see this thread for example:


So the current vhost ACL mechanism is going to be too coarse grained
for what you want to achieve. With the current broker, you would have
to implement the access control in your application.

Having said that, implementing some useful access control mechanisms
are on the mid to long term roadmap. These would most likely be
orthogonal to the protocol and as indicated in a previous post, *may*
include a capability based mechanism.

Contributions in the form of requirements and analysis (e.g. by
contributing to our wiki) or in the form of code, would help
accelerate the implementation.
