Description

On linux, I always added user comments to my own small test collections and did document editing tests on the demo collection.

During Windows testing, in order to save time, I tested both user comments then document editing on the demo collection, on the same doc. When editing a document for which comments were already added, noticed that the usercomment related metadata all appeared in the online metadata editor.

Do we want people with doc editing powers to be able to edit someone else's usercomments?

More generally, Kathy says there is definitely a list of meta which we don't want users to edit, such as assocfilepath, docnum and others. She thought of that having a reserved list of ineditable metadata, and checking against this when displaying the editable meta in the online doc meta editor, would be necessary.
