Actually I was going to ask about the same thing.  Would be great if
there were a way to give 'line item control' to list owners based on
their 'track record' of credibility (brains?) over time.  Some guys
probably just won't have a clue why they shouldn't change certain
things. MM is very well set up but there is so much stuff to learn
that just the volume made the learning curve daunting at first.
Limited access that 'grows' would keep that more sane for some
newbie list owners as well as the poor slob who has to fix the
stuff they mess up.
