Removing a default ACI is difficult (read: new code that could go

Perhaps we should just say in the release notes that people should
remove it
manually if they're upgrading from 4.0.2?

Well, I am not convinced that everyone reads the release notes, so I
would rather delete this permission in 4.0.3. Hopefully, there won't
be many 4.0.2 users. It seems as a lesser evil to me than having SSSD
clients broken.
If we are going to replace other ACIs by adding to them a right to read
these attributes, then removing a separate default ACI is not a problem,
isn't it?

It's not much of a policy problem, it's just adding new code this late in the cycle: The permission updater doesn't yet have a mechanism to remove a permission, so I'm writing it now.
