Yep, we have multiple customers who have asked for this and up until now 
the only way we've been able to do it is to rewrite most of the policy 
rules for every service. That's extremely error-prone and difficult to 

Also, doesn't this work address the longstanding complaint about there 
being no way to scope an admin account to a single project?

I know at one point we had someone who was doing work upstream to 
improve this, but I think that kind of tailed off. It seems like there 
is a compelling business case for us to have someone work on this, but
