Milton, thanks for your input. Let me clarify my rationale:

Without me trying to change your mind, my rationale for this was a combination of:

1. Support staff to be able to support us must be able to also "write stuff"

2. Liaisons when giving comments should be able to do that by do "change control" in Word documents

3. Everyone involved know about A (above), and because of this we would not need *technical* barriers for individuals regarding what they can/should not do, because the ability for people to do their work is overall more important, and because of this I see these two suggestions can be implemented at the same time.

Lets see what other people think (on all my suggestions).

   Regards, Patrik
