In the meantime, another site asked for the opposite case: they don't mind
people seeing plots from their site to the rest of the world, but also
like to install a few test boxes to measure on their own networks only and
NOT publish those results.  

If we do (C) right, we can deal with all cases with 1 mechanism.  
However, before implementing it, I'd like to know if people can imagine
more realistic cases that we'd should consider.  Please mail your comments
to the list, I'll collect them and come up with a proposal for
implementation in a week or two.
