Feature request - Should we treat 'create' permission differently

Reported by dleffler | July 23rd, 2013 @ 07:38 PM | in 2.2.3 (closed)

We currently treat the 'create' permission as needed to create new documents and also grant it an assumed 'edit' permission...meaning if you can create new items, you should also be able to edit them...esp. since we handle this on a module wide basis and NOT on an item by item basis...

Perhaps we need to allow item 'poster' as the owner of the item and also allow them permission to edit & delete that specific item. Meaning disconnect the create & edit perms since they apply module-wide and use the 'create' permission to allow creation of new items ONLY, but by creating an item, you are assigned as 'poster' and have 'edit' & 'delete' perms for that item.

Scenario. You have a module with many unrelated authors who have authority to add and maintain their entries, but can NOT alter other authors' items.
