Allow anonymous accces option on Enhanced Permissions Macro
As a user of Enhanced Permissions Macro would like the ability to add anonymous users view of an excerpt.
The use case is to have an excerpt on a page that is otherwise locked down to logged in users, then make an include on a page that is available to anonymous users.

We have determined that this poses a security risk and will not be implementing it. See the previous comment about excerpting content for anonymous users using pages that are accessible by anonymous users.
A feature like this would have to be opt-in by the admin user, using a new toggle on the MultiExcerpt admin tool. Allowing anonymous access to restricted content via a MultiExcerpt Enhanced Permissions (MEEP) macro implies responsibility to the content contributors to never put any sensitive information in the body of a MEEP macro. The same responsibility exists today with the use of a MEEP and a list of allowed users/groups but the consequences of a mistake are much larger if it is exposed to anonymous users.
Our recommendation for this use-case (expose content to pages accessible by anonymous users) is to only include content on anonymous-access pages by excerpting content from a page that is, itself, accessible by anonymous users. If that content is needed on a restricted page then use a MultiExcerpt Include to get it there. Use another MultiExcerpt Include to expose it on an anonymous page. Do not use a restricted page as the original source of any content that is to be exposed anonymously.
