How many of these things are implemented as web apps/views? And why would requiring them to ask permission be that big of a deal? There is exactly zero people who should be able to access any of this data without asking for permission, in my opinion. And I honestly couldn't care less how many business models or apps would be affected by having to ask permission. If the app is scared of asking for permission first, I don't want them having my data anyway.
