In my opinion, that's the wrong question to ask.  The right question
to ask is if there is a significant difference in the harm that can
result from such an arrangement if I am out of control compared to
when I retain control.  I believe that to be the case.

Nono, I agree that within the system there is no permanent, or more
specifically irreversible change in your arrangement.  The change
happens outside the system, involving the actors, that means real
human like you and me.

This assumes that revocation is feasible, which may not always be the
case, depending on what the relationship of power is between the
actors and the application.  Another point to consider.
