Yes, 2.0 has experimental support for in directory ACIs...
they are not documented yet... so you're on your own if
want to use them.

If you design your DIT well, you can use the ACLs built in regular
expression capability to provide such capability. In particular,
it's fairly easy to define an ACL which supports a set of
organizational units with subordinate manager or administrative
groups. See the archives for examples.

I agree... but you don't necessarily need in directory
ACLs to support dynamic management structures.
