HBase ACL's and snapshots

Hi,

Using Hbase ACL's, when a user can create a snapshot, but can't delete. What would you recommend here regarding ACL?

The AccessController Coprocessor for HBase, only a global administrator can take, clone, or restore a snapshot, and these actions do not capture the ACL rights. This means that restoring a table preserves the ACL rights of the existing table, and cloning a table creates a new table that has no ACL rights until the administrator adds them.
