We all know that WP is more like a CMS compared to just a piece of blogging software, and when it comes to having multiple authors, this is when this enhancement would really shine! :) If it doesn't make 3.0, then I'd hope 3.1 anyway?

So basically when you add another user, or alter a users account, the option will be there to check the boxes of whatever category and/or any taxonomies that particular person will be allowed to have posts published in. That's the plan anyway!

Erm... plugin territory?

The available categories for each author can be stored in the usermeta table.

The thought had crossed my mind to be honest, but I assumed (Maybe wrongfully!) that it wouldn't take much, and I guess being a non-coder, just possible enhancement thinker, doesn't help not being able to offer a patch! :(

Almost sounds like a different language to me!

I agree with scribu, this is plugin territory. Maybe a plugin like this might help?
