I don't know LSM so don't understand what you mean when you say that
interactions between mode bits and ACLs would make an ACL model hard to
implement as an LSM.

But in any case the rich acl/mode bit interactions are similar to the
posix acl/mode bit interactions, so the same issue probably applies.
