The most confusing part of this document to me was the 'quota' terminology. Quotas normally
refer to administrative limits (esp. disk quotas with hard and soft limits), not reserving
resources. Since what you are describing is an extension to the resource reservation system,
it would be clearer if it was described in those terms.

I was also concerned that access control / authorization is not planned for the initial implementation.
I think that if Mesos is to have an authorization policy, it should be applied uniformly following
the principle of least surprise.
