Because this permission page discussion has been discussed a few (?) times 
before: here is a very small summary of what we agreed upon last time:

split the permission pages up into three pages:
* permissions
** Permissions per category 
*** node
*** image
*** upload
*** comment etcetc
** Permissions per role
*** Anonymous user
*** Registered user
*** Site administrator
** All

Where 'All' lists the huge matrix,
'permissions per category' lists them per module. 
'Permissions per role' lists them per role.

What we could not yet agree upon was what to show on the pages 'permissions 
per category' and so itself. An good option, IMO is to not have any page 
there, but to activate the first menu item under it: 'node' in the above 
mentioned example menu.
