1. From what I have seen, a taxonomy-based permission scheme is more 
popular than one using node types.  If you aim to get this module 
included in core, it is worth discussing the idea of using the 
combination of roles and taxonomy terms, rather than the combination of 
roles and node types.  We should aim to include the most popular scheme 
in core.

2. Using a tab is OK for now, but ideally this would be part of the new 
node submission form.  The way I envision this, is to have a 
JetboxOne-like "permissions"-area under the node body that I can 
unfold/collapse.  This lets me set the permissions upon the initial 
submission (cfr. menu_otf.module).  Ideally, we'd be tackle this node 
submission form "dependency" while we are at it.  This makes for an 
excellent use case.

3. Neil had some ideas on how to configure the default 
workflow/behavior of nodes.  It might be a good idea to read up on this 
too, or to discuss this some more.  Ideally, we'd tackle this workflow 
"dependency" while we are at it.
