I worked up a patch to demonstrate the approach I'm advocating.

Consider this a prototype, I haven't had time to think
through all the cases nor run much more than test006
against it.

The advantages of this approach are:
        very little change to access_allowed() callers
          (even those who provide a state structure)
        no additional malloc/free calls
        no additional loops

        only addresses common read scenarios,
        some modify scenarios will not be benefit
          (e.g. modify: delete/member/value + add/member/value)
