I don't see anything about "also-notify" there. 

General ACL elements don't make much sense in also-notify. What would
it mean to specify a subnet, or a key?

A better match would be the "masters" clause, and in 9.3.x there is a
"masters" statement that enables you to define a named list of masters
that can be referenced later. It seems to me that it might be quite a
small tweak to allow such named lists to be referenced in "also-notify"
clauses as well. Maybe that is planned for some future release? 

Mark - any comment on that?
