I am not entirely sure your ACI syntax is always right for the second
set. and perhaps we want to duplicate ACIs in some cases (once for owner
once for manager).

I think the read ACIs do not need to list managedby ? Do we plan to have
a manager that is another regular user but not the owner nor an admin ?

In any case I prefer the sytnax that uses managedby, as it has more
potential.

Simo.
