What does "is not delegatable" mean?

I think you used to say "is owned by the parent", which is took to mean
file ownership is that of the parent directory (..) and not of the
current (,), which is slightly odd but works.

So if you chown a cgroup to a user, that user will not be able to change
the file of it's 'root' (will actually be the root in case of
container), but it _can_ change this file for any sub-cgroups it
creates, right?

So in that respect the feature is delegatable, a container can create
sub-partitions. It just cannot change it's 'root' partition, which is
consistent with a real root.

The only inconsistently left is then that the real root does not have
the file at all, vs a container root having it, but not accessible.
