Further to some of my other messages on this, if we think in terms of
invoices and other 'time-dependent' tables as representing events: you
cannot reverse an event, just perform a task that is a related (eg
reversing) event, it probably helps clarify everyone's thinking. This is
a 'best practice' :-) way of thinking when modeling systems.

It works like this. (What is reality? I dunno. OK what seems real? I
dunno. OK did something happen that we can agree made something seem
'real'? Maybe. Good, when was this and what can we record that we think
it appeared to be. This is a business event. The business rules are the
agreed things that happen, that cause or allow the Actor (user or
system) to record the event in the system.)

Sounds interesting. User Roles, and prefences and authorities based on
roles and/or users is all related. Feature Request [ 1555150 ] 'Fix
defaults handling' is related. I cant spot others but the whole area
should be there in Feature Requests somewhere.
