Ah. The ability to construct rules based on the NoScript whitelist and blacklist already exists in the alpha version of SABER, and yes, I agree that it has value (especially given the original CSRF-oriented purpose of ABE).

I'd be happy to focus on enabling extra ABE syntax. Maybe I could also implement the SELF* syntax that I was thinking about, (Accept from SELF* = Accept from everything on the Site line). I never did get far with the graphical interface design.

Fully agree.

Maybe as "workaround" (if it is possible) SABER opereates as a "bridge" between NoScript and µMatrix? So make using both addons to work better together.
Just as a idea if you say SABER need a lot of work and you like µMatrix.

That's almost certainly technically possible... but it's better for SABER to not require dependency on another addon aside from NoScript, plus µMatrix is (in gorhill's own words) "for advanced users", while SABER is originally intended to be accessible to intermediate users.
