Still, this is an implementation detail I won't meddle. The other time
you've mentioned that this could be accomplished by %post(un) and
%verify, so as far as I'm concerned %files section could have %acl or
%caps tags which would be converted to appropriate functions during spec
parse or something, you might be right that it doesn't make much sense to
attach them to every single file.

And %caps() only - without ACLs, we could have use for, e.g.
default:group:logs:r on /var/log as currently some logs are NOT readable
by user in logs group and this is beyond caps scope (DAC_OVERRIDE would
be per entire user x app set).

What exactly is the overhead of empty tag?

It doesn't.

Sorry, don't care either.

There are patches - in as you know.
