> HDFS does not allow changing owner of a file by normal user. Should falcon allow the
same for entities ? 
> Today if two users belong to same group "users" and the falcon entity ACL is "owner=user1,
group=users, permissions=*" , then user2 can update the falcon entity and claim ownership
of this entity.  User2 can also change the group from "users" to "privateGroup" and lock out
user1 from taking back ownership of entity.
