That would seem to conflict with the expectation set by the name 'Least Authority File System'.

Understand, I'm not being catty at all - I'm just saying that if this expectation conflict is confusing to me (and I've spent weeks reading wikis and mailing list history and experimenting with test grids), it will probably be confusing for others as well.
