You do not add this to an ACL. You add this to an http_access rule:

   acl markZeustrackerdomain annotate_transaction
   acl markFoobar annotate_transaction accessRule=foobar

   http_access deny zeustrackerdomain markZeustrackerdomain
   http_access allow foo bar markFoobar

   logformat ... accessRule=%{accessRule}note ...

> deny_info   http://proxy.charite.de/zeusdomain/ zeustrackerdomain

The above deny_info would have to be adjusted to stay in sync:

  deny_info http://proxy.charite.de/zeusdomain/ markZeustrackerdomain
