Sharder tab (@@shared): things related to owning isn't shown

Currently you can't see on the Share tab who owns the object and what effect that has. (I know its about "sharing", and that owner is usually shown on the /view and like, but still, in practice @@shared is used as a central place to review/change authorization matters.) This can be especially confusing combined with Plone 3's permission-like role labels. Like, one has "can edit" unchecked, yet he can edit the object because he is the owner. Explain that to non-technical people... roles + owning is confusing enough inherently, you shouldn't make it even more so. I think the user who owns the object should be marked with a crown or something, and then bellow you can add some legend, like "<crown> this user is the original creator of the object, hence (s)he can edit it and can add to it regardless of what is shown in the above table, but he still can't review (publish) unless that's checked in the above table."
