Unless, of course, you give users *ALLOBJ, *JOBCTL, etc as a general rule.

IMHO, end users should be kept as far away from the bare metal as possible. If they are running queries frequently, they should be provided a proper UI that lets them do the queries they need without having to use SQL.

The web admin interface is not a proper interface for end user. A web interface is a great idea, but it should designed & developed to prevent inappropriate access & updates.

IBM i security is fantastic, but the level of granularity needed to manage a large user base with differing levels of access is (again, IMO) a significant burden on administrators.
