I believe the system people. But I also believe that it is release dependent.  
40s at V3R6 & R7 was an interactive dog under any cicumstances.  But I believe
that the CFINT algorithm was altered in the V4R1 or V4R2 time frame so as to
permit a single user to exceed the interactive limits during a restricted state
operation (SAVSYS, RCLSTG, etc.)

Though, I'd like to hear Bruce's take on this as well.
