I think it is a good idea to have permission explained this way (it is 
much more case sensitive then what we have now with some help texts 
describing permissions). But if you would like to display this on the user 
page, it needs to have different wording, like:

   You are able to create content of type foo.

But this does not fit well on the admin page... You are not about to 
display the name of the permission to the user, are you?
