selfattr seemed to be excluded in my version (2.0.7), but the
other variant by using set=... seems to work.
Going over the documentation once again I found that dnattr might
work as well; Instead of defining in the "owner" object what subjects
it can modify, define the owner in the subject.
I.e. instead of saying "account X can write a,b,c", we say that
"a can be written by X, b can be written by X, c ...."
Or have I misunderstood the functionality of dnattr?

Yes, thanks for the advice. Strange that I did not find it when I
searched for it earlier (before posting the question :)
