These kinds of redundancies are pretty common for the sake of clarity and
the flow of the language.  Even major so-called "Usage Panels" accept
them.

The thing being parsed here is an array of datums of type "aclitem", so
the term "ACL list" is rather unclear anyway.  But I hesitate to change it
now because we wanted to call a string freeze.
