Comment (by scribu):

 I don't think this is a good idea by itself:

 Currently, a user with the upload capability can upload unlimited files.
 On a small shared host, they can easily take up all the available space.

 More importantly, uploaded files are instantly publicly available,
 allowing the user to link to them from other sources, before the site
 owner has the chance to review them.
