    It is about the feature "Protect area" in  Docs Spreadsheet Editor.  The background of the scenario is about  the customer has their own files repository  integrated with Docs Editor and the file owner can be removed the access of  their repository.   In this case,  if the protect area was earlier set by file owner A but the file owner A is removed the access of the  repository later, there is a possibility that no one else can change the access properties of the  protect area.

    The title can be updated - There should be a way to change the owner of  "Protect area" in  Docs Spreadsheet Editor.
