Not without more information. The state information is stored per
callback, which is one per file/directory in a writable volume, and
one per entire readonly volume, so without knowing what the client's
utilization will be, I can't say.

AFS acls are by directory. Unix mode bits are there but not enforced by AFS.

Some work was done last summer but to the moment there has been no
further progress, and the work from last summer at this point is
effectively only design work.
