There's something like that in HEAD for the domain ACL, that is the
subtree match has been implemented to avoid using regex to allow, say,
access to a subnet:

access to *
	by domain.subtree="polimi.it" read

which also allows submatches like

access to dn.regex=".*dc=([^,]+),dc=it$"
	by domain.subtree,expand="$1.it" read

This is experimental.

Subnet mask might be an interesting evolution; note that all of this,
at least in my opinion and from my personal experience, should not be
used instead of appropriate authentication.
