One small question.  Historically, in virtually all DOS/Win PC networking 
environments, the file attribute "r" was also recognized by applications as 
meaning "read-only" (whole file), even if it is just "advisory" to the 
network client.  What does AFS do in this situation, if anything at all, or 
is that still the applications responsibility to recognize the "r" attribute?
