But surely even Dean would admit that some form of rights
amplification is needed, no? If you think about it, all the issues we
see with EQ also arise with rights amplification operations. They all
basically take two capabilities and return a third capability. If the
two input capabilities aren't correct (in the sense of EQ), the
operation must fail, and vice versa.
