Subject Re: "NOT" operator in visibility string

I attempted to simplify the scenario to facilitate discussion, which on second thought may
have been a mistake. Here’s the whole scenario:

Different users have access to different subsets of the data depending on their authorizations
and the visibility of the data. Users “work with” the data in what we call a sandbox.
Sanboxes can be shared with other users (this is the group creation I was talking about earlier).
Deletes to the data would be “scoped” to the sandbox by changing the visibility to add
“& !workspace_name” so that people viewing the workspace wouldn’t see the data but
everyone else would.
