So, that behavior of letting the dynlist or dyngroup overlay do a query

control possible on the separate group dns to implement control over
entitlement visibility that's otherwise annoying to represent.

The dgAuthz/dgPolicy stuff that Ando proposed doesn't preclude what you want to do. I just am not convinced yet that dgAuthz is necessary. The code I just committed for dynlist.c leaves that out for now, we can add it later if the consensus is that it's useful.
