Thank you for the clarification of goals. I do not believe my
initial request to be compatible with this set of goals, and would
like that it be retracted. Specifically:
1) The initial request fails to maintain domain-coupling
2) The initial request does not permit anyone to be granted upload
rights without membership
I still think there is currently unnecessary complication in the
current group nesting, but I will need some time to propose a model
that meets these goals.
