Sure, that's called authentication. Happens to be the same in any
technical or physical world.

We are in the business of content management. The most valuable
information the system and the entire physical machine has is the
content in the system. You don't run web applications on any kind of
shared servers where the system has any more valuable data.

A person who is allowed to steal or delete the entire content is what I
call trusted. The potential additional damage of that person breaking
out of the web application is a minor concern compared to this. Allowing
any kind of TTW development is always going to be an explicit opt-in,
but if you are willing to allow this, we won't try to stop you with
limited access anymore.
