I think it's half of each.

I suspect that user1 can assign itself a local role of proxy_for_agf
and achieve the same result, without having to create user2.  A
little less unweildy.  The bug half IMO is that since manager can assign
itself the role anyway, it might as well be allowed to assign the
proxy role even though it doesn't have it.
