I've gone off this. I think we have the wrong model when we put the access control information into the file itself ... the gatekeeper model says that we separate the access control from the content.

Use case (example). We have the coapec dataset, with coapec permissions. We then had a new programme (rapid) which wanted access to coapec. We can do this (once) in the gatekeeper, or we have to update each and every file with the changed permissions. It's a no brainer ...

So, Dom, I reckon the heat is off :-)

Oh dear - well at least the code I've just written has a default of no security ;-)

I agree with you though - the gatekeeper is a better place for access control info.
