But what would you prefer in that case? One module that does allow us 
to set permissions to taxonomy _and_ node-types? Isn't that to much for 
one module?

The unfold/collapse method you mention does require CSS & javascript. 
(I can not think about any other way, of how to accomplish this 
behaviour otherwise) Do we allow javascript in core now?
For a long time, I thought we tried to use alternatives for that.. And 
to be honoust, I thought you were pretty much against using js inside 
But, maybe I am wrong?

Are there any screenshots of a new node submission form? Or 
mockups/examples/documentation? I'm willing to work on this, but would 
like to know the end goal..

Neil, can you come up with some mockup/writeup/examples?
