Then they wouldn't be global acls. They'd be
acls which applied to objects outside of all
databases. While it might make sense to have
a set of ACLs which applied to this set of
objects, it is different set concept than
(Note that global ACLs were invented before there
was a root DSE or cn=subschema.)
