I think I've asked this before, but I'll ask again. I don't see in the
functional spec for DERBY-464 where it says the database owner has
'"implicit" permissions on all objects'

All I see is that the database owner can create and drop any schema.

I also see comments like:

   "Only the owner (creator) of an object can grant or revoke privileges
on that object. "

Would be good to clear this up soon.
