Maybe not in that specific case, for example what about the situation
where you need to control access to all the my:document nodetypes. And
say a superuser needs to be granted access to all documents in the
repository (1M documents) then this instance of my:user security
property could have 1M UUIDs in the reference structure.

Should this situation be avoided?
