1. Provide users with the ability to edit their first name, last name and email address.
Sounds sensible. Will that ability be controlled by ACL?
2. Prevent any experiment leaving “private” status without at least one owner having a valid first name, last name and email address.
Sounds like a business rule determined by local policy. Hence, should be controlled by an option. This rule wouldn't necessarily make sense for a site that doesn't publish to ANDS, and doesn't want to publish users' email addresses.
I don't think there's any way to avoid the fact that different sites have different policies, and therefore options are required.
