In the case of a container with multiple users, and multiple
applications, one being a nested orchestrator, it seems relevant to
allow that container to control which of it's processes are able to
exercise CAP_AUDIT_CONTROL. Granted, we still want to control it
within the overall host, e.g. the container in question must be
allowed to run a nested orchestrator, but allowing the container
itself to provide it's own granularity seems like the right thing to
do.
