Well, I'm not sure it's so different from a ROM with OLC.  Player
are much the same except that they can edit areas.  The only major
benefit from being an immortal/god is that they get listed in a
section on who and cannot be killed.  They also get a number of rather
powerful world changing commands and a newbie free chat channel.

Does your approach means that whole teams of builders would have to
work together on areas? Stone masons, carpenters, black smiths,
necromancers, demonologists? All working together to produce the 'evil
wizards tower themepark'?
