ACL's do the same thing as firewalls

Some (most?) switch ACL implementations suffer from either
1) no logging, 2) very limited logging, or 3) logging can
affect forwarding.  You also may or may not get ACL hit
counters.  You need to find out *exactly* how these boxes
will log, and balance that with how comfortable you are
flying blind.
