Consider the case of OG, where you're using it to restrict access to  
data on your site.  It's a pain (and potential security problem) in  
the other direction, if you have to remember to privacy-enable all  
new content types as you add them, instead of having everything  
private by default until you exclude it from the privacy system.


Granted, this is a somewhat obscure case, and it's probably best to  
optimize the UI for the common case. But, this is probably what Moshe  
was thinking when he set it up like this in the first place.  Food  
for thought...
