Absent a view that somehow says all metadata is a security function, I don't see how the marking of administrative boundaries qualifies as a security function.

It's easy to imagine security functions that are 'in support of' the enforcement of the boundaries, but that's quite different from having an annotation mechanism to assert the boundaries.

Let's be careful not to overload functions here.
