In general, for servers, you enable all the privileges that the selected access level allows. This ensures that the server has access that is as high as users might have and can replicate all user changes. However, to prevent certain changes from replicating without de-selecting privileges for each user, you can de-select a particular privilege for a server entry in the ACL.
For example, in a hub-and-spoke configuration, a spoke server typically has Editor access. If it also has the privilege "Create shared folders/views" in its ACL entry, replication back to the hub may affect the following design elements: views, folders, shared columns, and navigators. To prevent spoke servers from replicating design element changes to their hub server. a best practice is to de-select this privilege in the ACL entry for each spoke server.
