IMO this is an authorization issue which should not be enforced by

I agree with Cyrus that MANAGESIEVE should provide a facility to access
the global script space.  Who has access to this space is a site policy
decision which would most likely be tied to the authid/authzid.

I agree as well. To the extent that MANAGESIEVE provides a means to
use sophisticated tools for sieve construction and maintenance, it doesn't
seem reasonable to deny these tools to admins maintaining global scripts, or
allow them but require an implementation-specific step on the server to
turn an admin user script into a global script.
