This module sounds real interesting. I hope to check it out soon.
In short, there is no way today limit node creation permission as you
wish. The node_access API was designed to limit/grant permission on
existing nodes, not on unborn nodes.
I think your only hope is to hack the user's permissions from within
hook_init() or something like that. you would want to strip the 'create x'
permission unless the user is creating from within your module.
You should be sure that noone has called user_access() before you do in
hook_init() because otherwise $perm is cached there and you can't affect that.
