          You should only have one ModelLocator.

          In a complex app I will usually contain references in my modellocator that point to other specific data models. All access to the data should be done through a single location in the modellocator.

          So if you want to maintain security info in its own object then create a security object that maintains the info you need and call it SecurityLocator.

          Then define it in the modelLocator as:
          public var securityLocator : SecurityLocator = new SecurityLocator();

          Then refer to the securityLocator through the modelLocator:
          modelLocator.securityLocator.userData.

          A single locator maintaining references to other data models keeps the code organized and no one has to question what models are available.

          hope it helps
