Bug Description

There are several cases where Launchpad must prevent users from selecting a team with an open subscription policy because it compromises security or discloses information. The person picker and forms need a vocabulary that is composed on closed teams (restricted and moderated), and users. The picker/vocabulary is needed is needed in:

1. closed team owner role
2. closed team +addmember
3. moderated team +proposemember

I have a suggestion here - if someone puts in an exact match for an open team, we should show-and-explain-why-its-not-usable.

I am not sure how we would do that with vocabularies, they return one set of data. The picker could be reimplemented to do an exact look + a search as we do on global search. hmm. Doing so would fix several related vocabulary/picker bugs where exact matches are not top listed (bug 419531). Worse still users get timeouts search for terms that do have an exact match (bug 541979).
