PAGE capabilities just like POST capabilities

Currently there are four capabilities related to posts:

  • edit_posts
  • edit_others_posts
  • edit_published_posts
  • publish_posts

But only one boolean capability for pages:

  • edit_pages

It would be very useful to allow users to, for example, edit their own pages, but not others, or to publish but not edit published posts, etc.


Related side note: I'm experimenting with different (CMS) work flow procedures and nothing works well. But then again, it's just me, a friend, and her mother. Mom generates most of the content, but can not publish (actually technically she does, but that doesn't make it visible). Her daughter edits the page and prepares it for 'official' publication. I then change the username (lock) and modify various 'index' pages to make the post 'visible'. We've tried leaving the pages as drafts, but then Mom can't 'view' in progress (why is that, actually?). End side note.

pages have all of the same capabilities as posts. See populate_roles_210() in wp-admin/includes/schema.php.
