I'm not sure I like this. First of all, this means there is an asymmetry between the permit and deny cases, as noted on the call. Secondly, this assumption rules out the following performance improvement: For deny-overrides, once an applicable permit rule has been found, other permit rules don't need to be evaluated, since they can never change the decision.
