Even better: let any user who can write to the file change its owner.
Unless I'm mistaken, if:
1. your clients are all set to ignore the setuid bit (which is now
2. you disable the "owner of volume root has 'a' rights" behavior
... then the unix owner/group of a file is reduced to meaningless
bookeeping to make AFS "look UNIXy" -- the same status the go+rwx bits
(and sticky bit?) currently have.
