I *think* all the use cases mentioned assume the limitations of the
Sakai 2 view of the world. I was thinking of something like "make this
site joinable by any first year student". This is the detachment of
groups membership from site membership.
Not to say that you can't go a long way with improvements to Sakai 2,
just that there will be more options with 3 and I didn't want the use-
case collection to be limited by our understanding of what is
currently possible. I think the Cape Town need for very large sites /
might/ be helped by this sort of model.
