access question

I think I have the access file sorted but to make sure, our readers.conf is

auth "localhost" {
    hosts: "localhost,, ::1, stdin"
    default: "<localhost>"

access "localhost" {
    users: "<localhost>"
    newsgroups: "*"
    access: RPA

auth custs {
    hosts: "IP.RA.NG.E/CIDR, *.anotherdomain, *.yetanotherdomain"
    default: <custs>

access custs {
    newsgroups: *

If my reading on man is right, this appear secure,  but is it
appropriate? Do we need a users: line or is it implied ?
