Yes, I agree with you.
It is a product of academics employed by NSA, and so of questionable practical
use for people who are dealing with system admin and security issues on daily
basis.

While being aware that I am expanding the thread with another sub-topic, let

This one will also affect UNIX/Linux system programming and introduce MORE
complexity and LESS security.
How about that "for a change" ?

It is called "capabilities".
