I disagree pretty strongly. The TI provides the meta-information for a piece of 
content. We _could_ do what DC Workflow does and provide a whole seperate system 
for managing role-permission mappings for these two permissions, but why do that 
when simply setting permissions on the TI could work so well?
It seems pretty intuitive to me, does anyone apart from you find it unintuitive?
