While I think that running at less than level 30 is ridiculous I'd like to 
up a point.  The way most people implement security, they might as well be 
running at level 20.

Typical scenario:
Several libraries are owned by a group profile, let's use SSA for an example.
All the users have SSA as their group profile, (unless they are using the other 
package on the system to do their accounting).
Therefore all of the users, (at least the SSA users) have *ALL access to all of 
the files owned by SSA.
Security officer says I'm secure.  I only allow them to access via menus.
Some user then downloads the file using Client Access.
Another user uses ftp from their PC to get to the data.
Another user, using NT and Client Access, clicks on start, run, and then types 
in  RMTCMD DLTF library/ECLL01
        Test this with rmtcmd sndmsg 'test' rob
Another user ...

There are work arounds to limit this.  Such as exit point programming.  Another 
is to change all of the green screen programs to adopt the authority of SSA and 
the users to some other group profile.  I've known companies who do this.  I 
don't know 
what they do for the limited grey screen programs they use.

If your business partner wants you at 20, I'd find a new business partner that 
knows something about the AS/400 and security.

Perhaps, but I'm at 30 !  This "business parter" would like for me to be
at 20...but he got over ruled!
