Can you provide an example (make one up) where ownership cannot be
defined as hierarchical and accumulative?

I am suggesting that HTTP's concept of "ownership" (for purposes of
replacing cache entries) be defined by the specs to be hierarchical,
since if I own / and I want to sabotage /subdir/ all I have to do is
log in to the server and replace/delete it.
