There are two questions here:
1) How does the user define and selct the object he wishes to
2) How does the system manage the security aspects of user-created
I don't have an answer to #1. I do however keep thinking of trying to
adapt the aggregates concepts discussed here last year to some sort of
interface presentation. How? Dunno.
#2 is of course mostly a concern with user-programming, but can enter
into non-user programmed systems as well.
