I described the system. I'll gladly hear your suggested solution.

I'll even settle for you saying where the logic flaw is that causes root 
to be erroneously required.

Again, elaborate on "this", and we can have a discussion. As far as I 
can see, we have a very reasonable set of requirements, each of them 
totally reasonable, and they lead to the conclusion that either root or 
a way to treat non-root as root is required. Show me the flaw in the 
logic, and we can discuss "better" alternatives.
