In the third part of the question, does this mean that any user can
delete any entry? If so, what if that entry already has children
nodes? Do we have have to do a recursive delete then, or does this
assume that the person can only delete a child node that he or she had
just created?

Deleting entries

I would recommend that you stick to a more simple design for this pset. It would be easier to implement a feature to delete a child node. If a parent node was created in error, then it could be deleted after its children were deleted.
