Well, I think so. However, before you make any kind of changes which
could be security/stability relevant you should first test it many
times in other machine (one in you have physical access for example
and belongs to you), and only apply them in the oficial server if you
certainly know it wont break your system.

I believe remembering one thing that someone wrote somewhere time
ago(maybe in an article, one mail in the mailing list or something
else), one bad security policy could be worse than haven't nothing (I
don't remember who said that)
One behaviour of granting all should be particularly discouraged in
production systems, and in all systems into a network.

The role_inherit_mixed_up I think is the behaviour by default in the
RC model (as you can see in their documentation), and probably used
for all login based programs.
