Opinion Poll!

let's assume each file and directory carry a tag which
says "this is a file of context N", where N is the context
number of a virtual server.

let's further assume a file or directory can only be in one
context at one time (e.g. it has only one such tag)

would you like:

 1) if the almighty context zero/one modifies files
    of another context ...

    a) the files/dirs to keep their context?
    b) the files/dirs change to context zero?
 
 2) if a program of context N encounters a file of
    context M, where N != M ...
 
    a) on modify change the file to the new context?
    b) do not allow access to files from other contexts
       except context zero/one?
    c) allow modification while keeping the file
       in its 'original' context?
 
 3) consider a program creating a (hard)link to a file
    in another context (including zero/one), should ...
 
    a) the file change to the 'new' context?
    b) the file keep the old context?
    c) this operation be disallowed?
  
 4) consider a program removing a link to a file with
    more than one links, should the remaining links ...
 
    a) be still 'owned' by the removing context?
    b) be changed to context zero/one?
 
TIA,
Herbert
