 Currently there are four capabilities related to posts:

  * edit_posts
  * edit_others_posts
  * edit_published_posts
  * publish_posts

 But only one boolean capability for pages:

  * edit_pages

 It would be very useful to allow users to, for example, edit their own
 pages, but not others, or to publish but not edit published posts, etc.


 Related side note: I'm experimenting with different (CMS) work flow
 procedures and nothing works well. But then again, it's just me, a friend,
 and her mother. Mom generates most of the content, but can not publish
 (actually technically she does, but that doesn't make it visible). Her
 daughter edits the page and prepares it for 'official' publication. I then
 change the username (lock) and modify various 'index' pages to make the
 post 'visible'. We've tried leaving the pages as drafts, but then Mom
 can't 'view' in progress (why is that, actually?). End side note.
