I'd say you should expand the syntax a bit:

READ ^public
WRITE ^development
DENY READ ^public/except/for/this/file$

When you're at it, you should also allow for different ruling on different
branches, not only directories.

I've been into the need for having write-permission (and it's a nice idea in
general) only to the a particular "sandbox" branch of a project.

That would be a nice feature in CVS, also because it _can't_ be supported
only on the basis of file permissions.
