With Android L already out and 5 sure to come out soon Dalvik is dead, which is a problem because all the ACLs I seen use Dalvik.

Is there one for ART? so far I found none, is it because its too complex? or its just too early?

Yep, not crazy about ART being "obligatory" now either, benchmarks so far don't show the promised bump in speed google has been talking about, and apps take more space due to the pre-compilation.

Afaik ART code and repos are available, what would be/is the impediment to create a CL?
