In modern environments with a minimum need of data protection it is mandatory to set an expiration date to user accounts.
Informix heavily depends on the user management of the underlying OS.
In real life users have access to different databases on the same instance with a different set of permissions. i. e. roles.
It would be highly desireable to be able to define an expiration date on the default role of users. When reaching this expiration date the default role should be changed to "none", thus revoking all rolebased privileges.
An alternative would be an expiration date on the (database-)user, which seems to be far more complicated to implement.
