It actually come into play with files as well. If you own a file you
can read and write it, even if the directory ACL don't allow you to.
This is significant when having entries like

someone il

in the ACL. I don't know if the OpenAFS client support this though. At
least an OpenAFS client from 2002 running on Solaris give a permission
denied trying to write to a owned file. A current Arla doesn't.
