DAV ACL question

Folks,

Still a relative DAV newbie and trying to wrap my head around RFC 3744. 
  If I have an implementation where DAV:read-current-user-privilege-set 
can not be split from DAV:read, and DAV:read-acl, DAV:write-acl, 
DAV:unlock can not be separated from one another, is the response below 
correct?

I have DAV:read-current-user-privilege-set as abstract under DAV:read, 
and I have DAV:read-acl, DAV:write-acl, DAV:unlock all as abstract under 
a private aggregate right CYRUS:admin.

Actually, looking at this again, since all of the member privileges 
contained in the DAV:write aggregate have been granted to the current 
user, should DAV:write also be listed?
