Currently, if a bridge has a controller configured it will disable 
ACL's, independent of the state of that controller.  It probably makes 
sense to turn them on if fail open goes into effect.  It would give 
administrators much finer grained control beyond just fail-open and 

I don't think that it would be too confusing to have ACL's suddenly 
spring in to effect in this situation.
