Currently, with the "set" directive, you could do this:

access to filter=(invisible=true)
  by set="user/role & [staff]" read
  by set="user/role & [student]" none

I didn't understand the set contruct correctly it seems. I saw it as sets of dn's and couldn't see its use with forward references. When I now read Mark Valences description again it seems to be sets of arbitrary strings - dn's or "ordinary" attribute values. If the final set is empty the set clause fails otherwise it succeeds.

Sans the possibility for wildcards in the by filter construction this seems - as you write - much more powerfull.

I could even be used in the limits part.

You seems to actually understand the set construction so why don't you expand the documentation - for the rest of us?
