You should at least THINK about how you could extend this into a
multi-user environment, and maybe even leave the hooks in place to
extend it later.  I think it's okay if you don't actually implement
that part, but it should be clear HOW someone COULD implement it

Beyond that, sure, go ahead and apply!   Good Luck!
