... Right. The name attribute was intended for attribute-based access.
IMO, it makes no sense to consider key values when doing security checks.
I will let Jim comment on your use case.
What use case? I missed it. Where is it?
"AccessControl.SecurityInfo.SecurityInfo.setDefaultAccess" allows integers, strings, dictionary mapping names to integers and function with signature "name,value --> boolean" as arguments.
The motivation is that some attributes may be accessible while others should not. It is highly likely that this decision is based on the attribute name. When "None" is passed as name, you loose...
None should never be passed for attribute accesses. If it is, then there is a bug. The case of dictionary mapping names to whatever is for attribute access. We are talking about item/key access. I haven't seen a use case for needing to specify separate access for separate key values.
BTW, telling me that an algorithm has changed doesn't constitute a use case. :) I know that algorithm has changed. I assert that we don't need the feature that the change broke. I am open to evidence to the contrary.
