I'm unsure how familiar you are with the whole authorization/ACL side of
how we currently do things, but I'd see great value in having those
test/use cases outlined, especially from somebody didn't already have
'the way we do things now' engrained in them.
There are quite a few areas where it's too easy to say "you can't do it
like that, do this instead" and to have these test/use cases written up
in the first instance without consideration for these factors would be
great. Especially on the mixed private/public data side of things.
