True.  But I think this is unlikely to be a problem when _copying_ a
file, because the copy is created by you, so you get full access by
default, and that includes the "write DAC" (a.k.a. "change ACL")
privilege.  However, it _can_ happen that after copying the ACL from
the original, you no longer can change the access rights, if that
privilege was denied in the original.  Which is okay, I think.
