Do they have every legal right to do with the document as they see fit?
Or, perhaps more accurately, should they?  What if the owners decided to
burn the document?  Should they be legally allowed to do so, even if
they are the legal owners?  Aren't there some obligations attendant on
owning certain types of property?  And if there isn't, shouldn't there
be?

(I'm assuming that there are no laws prohibiting such actions.  I may be
wrong.)
