Sure. A User needs to have items analogous to a company or division assigned to them. You may have 15 to 60 users who are various levels from Admins to people who only run reports. In addition to other various security settings, as a last step the users need to be assigned n number of companies. The companies would be different to different users. It's possible that all 15 to 60 users would be given access different numbers and "groupings" of companies or divisions.

Mainly because the core set is undetermined and will shift depending on the role of a user. Over time and usage we should be able to create logical groupings to help out, but the initial users wont have that available and since the relationship of people to items is many to many with no hierarchy. If I could safely define the core, that's the way we would have gone.
