- rationale should mention the purpose of the www-data user and group
- web documentation should describe in more detail how they're intended to
be used, especially that web _documents_ should not be owned by them.
(BTW, for this reason I don't understand why /var/www is root.www-data)

/etc/passwd and /etc/group
