No Dave, that isn't the point.  That "was" the point.  But if you look at 
John's last sentence.
<snip>
But adopted authority has a serious shortcoming that limits it's 
usefulness in the file systems that the majority of new applications would 
use.

If I do a
MD DIR('/scratch')
CHGAUT OBJ('/scratch') USER(*PUBLIC) DTAAUT(*EXCLUDE) OBJAUT(*NONE)
CHGOWN OBJ('/scratch') NEWOWN(BUBBA)

A program that adopts the authority of BUBBA will still not have authority 
to data in this directory.  You need to do profile switching to get 
access.  See the profile handle api's at
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/iseries/v5r4/topic/apis/sec1.htm

An example of profile handling is if you use any netserver drives on your 
i5, or if you use WDSC or any other such client server application.  Then 
you could do a 
WRKOBJLCK OBJ(MYID) OBJTYPE(*USRPRF)
In there you will find jobs that are running under one user id, but 
"servicing" another.
