(B) All the other players.
Blast said, also, though, that a plugin could assign permissions as it sees fit based on any criteria but he is not sure any exist that are designed for offline/decentralized use. Then, maybe, there could be a good way to assign permissions, though I have not thought about it still.
Maybe I am missing something but, in the other hand, the documentation is not updated about this topic and it's something complex to understand too. What I did worked, at least. Hope it helps.

Also getting rid of the /password command which would have made the server more secure too.(when running as local.)
Private list and authentication was another idea, but would be complicated to start and run it as it wouldn't be a long term thing, so it wouldn't make much sense to do.
Probably a few other players want to run test servers and to assign permissions too, but not give full perms as well so it was partly behind the idea of the plug-in too.

It is only for testing (tho would work also for playing scenarios): just give players some perms and retain all the others as an admin, like in my example. Don't get too complicated. If you have a clear example where you need more than 2 groups, give it.
I neither see much problem with /password; specially in a local server.
I would recommend you just testing and trying a lot.
