There is no way to restrict access on selected documents at once.
You have to go to Edit Properties and change "Who Can Access This" document per document.
This procedure is time consuming!
Why can't I selected multiple documents and change the access rights?

Edit the ACL of each Document is time consuming in general. Wouldn't it be smarter to modify your mocked up functionality to modify a directory ACL, for example? All Included files would inherit the directory ACL then. In this case I would appreciate this....

But that's what they do today... A document will by default inherit it's security from a Place, a Room or a Folder ACL.
I want to overrule the default ACL of a subset of documents stored in a folder. I don't want to modify the ACL of all documents in a folder.

I have two problems with that:
1. The only way of doing it today is by editing the properties of every individual document.
2. I have to do it via the web interface, I cannot modify the ACL of a document via the Quickr connector.

P.S.: Changing Directory ACLs are not that simple as you mocked it up :)

This could be done programatically with a widget but as you mention it would be browser only.
