I kind of wish we could come up with a design that does not require them  
at all, because permission grants are horrible. Not having a "feature  
permission" specification is probably one step in that direction. :-)

The "feature permission" specification was originally going to be  
published by this group as it was mostly made for notifications; but some  
saw use for other features too, such as disk quota grants, geolocation,  
... That idea never got much traction though as far as I can tell so  
putting permission methods statically on the Notification object might be  
a good idea.
