there are consequences of granting someone (P1) increased authority to do X.

you may favor "do X" over "no action". but when you grant P1 increased authority to do X, you also risk having P1 do action X2.

and your preference ranking might be along the lines of X > no action > X2. In which case you may decide not to grant P1 increased authority.

This is sort of like what Evan Bayh said when he said that he would not support granting Bush the authority to do something to Iran. He said that he would probably vote for the proposal in other cases, but not when Bush was in office (because "we cannot trust this administration")
