A great idea. As a user active in our support forums, I would also love to
see "view own TYPE content". For some of the other there are roundabout ways
to achieve, using taxonomy access control, but for "view own" there is none.
Requested use cases for private workspaces do exist, and the current ways
are rather convoluted (1-user OG groups, 1-user user categories, unpublished
nodes... and the like)
