#17254: Contributors should be able to upload

 Workflows and typical post content have evolved since the roles were
 defined. Posts frequently contain images, video, etc. As it is now, for
 someone to be able to put an uploaded image or video in a post, they have
 to be an Author, because contributors have no upload rights. This means
 that if a post contains any media, the person writing it has the ability
 to publish. There's a big gap now for use cases where a site owner wants
 to curate/edit contributor submissions before publication but wants those
 contributor posts to not be limited to text-only creations.

 Proposal: allow contributors to upload media files (kept as draft, not
 published until approved by higher role).
