Assuming some custom code, everything is possible. :)

BTW, one of our "Google Summer of Code" student is currently writing a 
storage backend API.
We also will separate data and metdadata (ACLs are metadata).

After that, your plan might get a bit easier, but that will take some 
months from now (when he succeeds).

Until then, you could maybe hack some cronjob, getting the ACLs out of 
the DB and editing them into the moin pages.
