i disagree that you should be able to change the actual existing
attributes of an item you shared read-only. that completely defeats
the purpose of read-only permissions.
i'm all for allowing you to make notes about an item that are only
visible to you, or maybe even override an item's attributes again for
you only, but as you point out, that's a different thing altogether.
as a step along the path to a different eventuality, i think your
suggestion is even more wrong, because not only does it contradict the
read-only nature of the access specified by the sharer, but it sets an
expectation that would be once again contradicted when the final
solution iss put in place.
