They participate fully, as long as you are not trying to use the DataSkin
class itself without mixing it with a Zope base class that supports
security.  Note that even though ownership and the Owner role are not set
up by default for rack-mounted DataSkins, you can still set them up
manually or programmatically, if you are so inclined.  The only reason
they're not set up is because it's ordinarily the job of an ObjectManager
to set them up on items added to the ObjectManager, and a Rack does not
relate to its DataSkins as an ObjectManager.
