Composer/Ellipsis: Decouple permissions for First Publish and Ability to add sections to a story

In our workflow, we want to prevent reporters (journalist role) from being able to do first publish of a story on the web, but do want them to be able to define the web site sections in which a story should appear.  We cannot impoement this, as the First Publish and Add Site Section permissions are bundled. As a result, editors have to add the site sections (as they DO need to have first publish capability.

If these two permissions could be decoupled, we would be able to allow Reporters to add site sections but NOT be able to first publish stories.

    Hi Ian -- We will implement this feature, which we call Circulate. We don't have a firm roadmap date but it is a key goal later this year or early next.
