It was from a new user perspective that I started this thread and there 
is no apparent difference from the end user point of view as delivered 
(at least with HEAD).  As delivered they "work the same" regardless of 
whose perspective you use.  There is no mention of workflow in the 
content type (or should that be node type) administration page nor in 
the page and story descriptions.  I could see no difference in the 
workflow when I viewed page vs story content submissions.  In fact the 
story content type description makes little sense with regard to the 
story page submission form.
