	Depend on how you feel you should be aware of this part of the
	T&C for iCloud.

	Do you want to allow iCloud to publish your files? Or to MODIFY
	them? I know I don't.

	I would never use a cloud service for my files as some of them
	claim ownership of the files, or in this case claim they can
	MODIFY the file without my permission.
