[all][operator][policy] Operator feedback on 'Consistent and Secure RBAC" (new design for RBAC)

Is that Nova's interpretation, specifically the delineation that
non-project owned should only be viewable by system, or was system
scope changed at some point? I interpreted it differently, but haven't
circled back recently. I guess interpretation and evolution in
specific pockets after initial implementation work started ultimately
resulted in different perceptions.

I'll make sure operators are aware there may be significant nuances
and perception differences since they are using their own etherpads
and their own communications flow. i.e. we're unlikely to see many
find/use our own etherpads as they have their own. And yes, this is a
problem, but it is a higher level community/communications feedback
issue under active discussion.

Granted, I get that the system scope ideas were breaking for some
projects in specific use patterns since not everything would be the
same nor possible (which is actually a good thing, context of use and
all), but it was in theory perfect for a lot of the external audit
tooling use cases which arise in so many different ways.

Anyway, off to the next $thing with my scattered brain.
