Are you proposing to encrypt data transfered between cluster nodes?
That's the very least.

Eg: What if i want to share a file with you, but i don't
want anyone else on the cluster to be able to read or modify it?
Why this can't be handled with help of ACLs?
Because I as evil kernel hacker don't have to obey the ACLs you set if I already have access to the raw data.
