By, well, not locking yourself out? Or by using an admin account,  
which will have permissions anyway.

You create child permissions when you want a finer-grained level of control.

Right, there aren't more precise levels under those. The UI should be  
better about that, obviously, but otherwise that's fine.

Again, we could be better about not offering the option when it isn't  
valid, but that's all correct.
