It seems to work for me.  It uses the same mechanism that is used
by other cases where ACLs can be used including view{} statements.

Did you remember to following this restriction in the ARM:

    Note that an address match list's name must be defined with acl
    before it can be used elsewhere; no forward references are

Did you install the new version of named-checkconf?
