[Lukasz] Yes

+ 3. When crosswalk launches application it has to call security-manager 
(which calls cynara) in order to check access to privileges that are 
accessed by service but directly.
Security-manager will check in cynara acces to such privileges and 
assign proper groups to process that was just launched. DAC will take 
care of access control since then.
