Yes, the problem is that for a ZODB I'd say that an owner of an object may 
alter it's data. For instance, a user has a "person" object and may alter his 
name, address but he must not alter other person objects.

When using a RDB, all persons are in a table and I have a Person object, which 
represents a row of this table, however, I cannot outline who owns the 
person, therefore I have to allow access to person objects for all users. 
Therefore I have to do security at another level, e.g. the view and not at 
the model.

Nevertheless I assume there will somehow be a magic command that I can issue 
for the RDB-based classes (probably there's some counterpart to the 
ZCML "class" directive).
