Yes, that's correct.  And to allow access for @editors and
alice (assuming alice isn't a member of @editors),  use

    "@editors id:alice"

I totally agree that "id:" is a bit incoherent, but
it was my best guess for things at the time when I implemented it,
and I haven't come up with anything that is better enough to
warrant changing this.
