At least 3 modes of operation would be interesting:
"read only mode" - anything works but no changes upon configuration are
allowed, no deletes and (likely) no user-commands - you can sit anyone in
front of your system and need no worry
"read/record/delete" - anything allowed but no changes on configuration (aka
channels, setup, plugins) - girlfriend mode ;-)
"full access" - aka administration mode, well...
