Continuing the OP, as both Jude and the Assumption of Moses teach us, if the archangel Michael was afraid to rebuke Satan, and Jude tells us not to rebuke the heavenly beings, then it stands to reason now that we don't currently have dominion over "fallen angels" (for lack of a more precise term).

So you would see the angels and the demons as not being in the same category of being than?
angels may or may not be in the same category. Anggelos simply means messenger. No, what we call demons aren't in the same category. If by demon you mean "unclean spirit," as is used in the gospel.

Back to earlier questions: do believers have dominion over angels/fallen angels? Let's look at it this way:

The girl in Ephesus had a python spirit, which Paul rebuked. So he had authority over that, at least. Yet, we are warned not to revile the heavenly beings, such as Satan. So we don't have dominion over that.
