I was a little excited to see Contact delegation released. ( http://support.google.com/a/bin/answer.py?hl=en&topic=20016&answer=2590392 )

I was very surprised to see that the feature I was looking forward to was missing. Delegates cannot add contacts. They can only view and edit existing contacts. Does this limit the value for others? Or am I missing the point of the feature?

I, too, was disappointed with this new feature, in that you may delegate your contacts to no more than 25 other users at the same time. Delegation allows the sharing of the entire “My Contacts” list only. You cannot delegate a subset of your “My Contacts” or delegate contacts not in your “My Contacts.”

We have been using a Marketplace app called Ginza Contacts to provide users a way to have shared contacts; many offices have business needs for this. I was hoping we could decommission Ginza and use the new Google Contacts delegation  feature instead, it won't do the job needed.
