Some. The State of California Health and Human Services Privacy Board has adopted ZBAC (basically using SAML authorization assertions as capabilities) for dealing with consulting physicians. Also, NSA was interested enough to fund a study comparing ZBAC to ABAC (Attribute-Based) access control, which showed a 60:1 performance advantage for ZBAC as well as easier fine-grained sharing.
