Users with owner role

Bug #141930 reported by Toby Dickenson
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Zope 2

Bug Description

Does it ever make sense for a user to be given the Owner role directly?

As a local role yes, but I cant see a reason for giving a user this role globally. On several occasions have been explaining the Owner role, I have found that its presence on the user role list leads to confusion.

I've seen CMF sites use the owner role, for better or for worse, as a kind of "manager" without being "manager."

And therefore I think this should be rejected, since it may break backwards compatibility without actually adding any functionality.
