Yeah, but so what?  GrantLockLocal does not contain any way that external
code could change the way that a new lock is recorded.

(IOW, yeah, certainly third-party code could create a new *instance* of
the ResourceOwner data structure, but they would not have any knowledge of
what's inside unless they had hacked the core code.)
