Lead Link and Circle resources

We have recently bumped into an apparent inconsistency that we'd like to get some clarification on.

GlassFrog Habit #4 has the following statement in it:

You can't buy a new computer without Lead Link approval. Lead Links have the power to allocate resources.

We understand that the Lead Link has the following accountability:

Allocating the Circle’s resources across its various Projects and/or Roles

However, to disallow others from access to the circle's resources, wouldn't that need to be a domain on the Lead Link--not just an accountability?  I would have assumed that any resource allocated to the circle by the organization would be an implied domain and therefore accessible to any Role in the Circle (2.1.2).

Clearly, there's something here we don't understand correctly.  Can someone help us?
