Please remind me of the relationship between control domains and usage
domains... IIRC, usage domains allow both requests and configuration,
while control domains allow only configuration, and are by convention a
superset of usage domains.

Is there a hard requirement somewhere in there, or can the admin
cheerfully use different masks for usage domains and control domains
without the SIE choking on it?
