Upgrading EML version causes access policy to be lost
Matt saved a DataONE package to the MN using R, but the EML was 2.0.1 and had no access rules in it. The SystemMetadata specified public access. When he opened it in Morpho it had him upgrade it to 2.1.1, but the access rules were lost.

My hunch is that the original SystemMetadata (from the MN) is discarded during the upgrade process and new SystemMetadata is generated from the EML fields. We should really be saving the original SystemMetadata and then just setting these fields:
-identifier (new identifier)
-obsoletes (the original identifier)
-formatId (new EML version)

Here is an example EML 2.0.1 file that has an accessPolicy set in SystemMetadata. When I open it by id in Morpho (after many exceptions because it cannot find the referenced data file) it asks me to upgrade to 2.1.1. I say yes, and then look at the access policy and there are none.
See the SM has an access policy:
