To Grant or not To Grant

Do you guys think that grant (permission) should be a first-class citizen of the Digital Fortress World?

I mean, as of now the DF implementation uses:

Application 1 ==> N Roles
Application 1 ==> N Users ==> N Roles

So as you can see we only associate users to roles.

I can see associating grants to roles as a good thing, but as always I hate working with strings, so maybe we could come up with a Web-Service proxy-like approach, in which we auto-generate a Permissions class for you with typed permissions.

Hope to hear from you all soon,
