More on the history of Usus, Fructus, et Abusus -- the three aspects of civil property rights in Roman law: http://penelope.uchicago.edu/Thayer/E/Roman/Texts/secondary/SMIGRA*/Ususfructus.html
What if Usufruct had become the dominant property rights paradigm? We're ephermeral beings. Our "time of enjoyment" is temporary. What if Abusus was always held in common, in the public trust?
"The Fructuarius could make such changes or alterations in the thing as would improve it, but not such as would in any way deteriorate the thing, or even render the maintenance of it a greater burden."
