Hi David,

Thanks for the detailed review!

We spoke about this when Timo built this part. My advice then was that as
long as p.a.d was a separate package, duplicating what was already in the
Types control panel would be confusing.

This can be done with an automatic transition guarded by this permission.

I hope we can make that happen with content rules. We may need to register
some new event types for the content rules engine, but that's easy enough.
