If that is used *everywhere* for authorisation then there could well
be more doc errors to correct. I am fairly sure I saw one place where
the docs specifically exclude some of those forms.

I notice that '*' excludes anonymous in this spec. There is an
undocumented option to 'allow' that seems relevant: proxy_authz_anon -
would allowing this cause anon to be included in '*' generally or is
it not that simple?
