Unfortunately, the rule icon is already a fragile hack.  If you copy,
rename, export, or otherwise move an Access Rule, it ceases to be an active
rule, but the icon doesn't go away.  The only thing which gets rid of it is
using Set Access Rule to turn it off.

I'd like to come up with something more robust; I'm open to implementation
suggestions.  Keep in mind that the container and object involved don't know
anything about Access Rules.
