You could make file ACLs also. But if you specified a dir ACL, it was taken for each file in that dir automatically. That makes sense, as most things are done on a per-dir base anyway, right? At least, if you have a system supporting it that way, you automatically use that approach to order things in directories, as it makes life - and administration! - much easier.
