I'd propose only you should be allowed to build on it.
It would be frustrating if you want to construct a pool,
and then your opponent puts a wall construction site on your pavement.

Or paint it in the color of the team that paved it.

That sounds so good, but:
since clearing areas don't work (well), paving areas won't either.
Can this be improved by giving paving areas higher priority, or
are there difficult bugs that cause the uselessness of clearing areas?
