The most appealing feature to me would be that a client could in advance
determine what access control is in effect and modify the input forms
accordingly. But without a common standard there is no point in using
in-directory ACIs.
Couldn't you use Get Effective Rights for that?

That would be close, maybe good enough for a GUI. But Get Effective Rights can't tell you about value-specific rights.
