The acl directive
#acl SomeUser:read,write All:
can be used on any page.  It overrides the default ACL which is set in
the config file (variable acl_rights_default).

You do not need to add a pagename into the ACL directive because it only
applies to the page it is on.

What you may want to do is set the default ACL to allow "All:read,write"
and then on any page you want to be immutable, put the directive
#acl AdminUser:read,write,admin All:read

What is the setting of acl_rights_default and acl_rights_before in your
wiki?  If your wiki is visible on the internet, perhaps  we can take a
look at what you're trying to do.
