Everybody can add tasks, right, but they have to be approved by members 
in special teams (e.g. ubuntu-dev).
Giving those people (those -> contributors which are not ready for 
ubuntu-dev status, but are able to do the right things) the rights to 
add tasks which are then already approved, is great.
That's also an appreciation towards those contributors. (Only Regarding 
Universe/Multiverse Stuff, not Main/Restricted)

I think there are some wishlist reports already filed about a more 
granular permission concept, if not, let's do it together and formulate 
a clear proposal.
