Whether I am entitled to commit is completely separate from whether I am
entitled to locally modify.

There should certainly be a tool to tell me the first, but what the hell is
the tool doing making my life miserable on the second when it is not a
restriction that the tool can enforce?

Note also that I could perform local mods, be added to the access list, and
*then* check in. No determination about the authority to check in is
possible prior to the moment I check in.
