Because it opens the way for hundreds of new special properties. I'd
rather encode this in one property somehow, even though that means new
commands (or a specialized script) to set those properties.

Let's think about how this can be represented in a sufficiently
non-Unixy way so that it can be mapped to both u-g-o bits and Windows
ACLs -- that means representing the Unix semantics, not the actual
implementation. Can you write up an idea and put it into notes/, then
I'll look at it and knead it to fit the Windows model?
