	that may be true in your world... :)
	I am of the opinion that if I am granted a delegation
	that I need to apply the principles of stewardship, e.g.
	effective utilization of the space ... if that means that
	I have an operational model that allows me to sub-assign
	and sub-allocate space using the same rules for management
	of the delegation for users of my space as apply to me.

	note that "my" here refers not to ownership of the space
	but ownership of the responsiblity for effective stewardship.
