As a matter of practice I'd prefer to be included in anything he can do, as
that's kind of the point of how we have structured assistants (it gets
annoying if there's a list of can and can-nots when people come asking me
for stuff when he isn't around), but yeah I'd only be doing these approvals
in an assistant capacity, not as a primary gatekeeper.

I don't know if we need them, but if not the one we have should be removed.
Just looking for consistency and definition of what flags are there.
