Something exactly like a template. :) The default acls are, to my knowledge,
site-wide in moin_config.py. The defaults for a given page can be controlled by
a template, so your users should stick to a given template for new page
creation. At the moment, I think that's the best that moin can do without

If they don't have admin access, they can't modify ACLs.

Ummm...can you try putting a default acl in a template and see if that works on
page creation without requiring admin access?
