That part isn't clear why we "must" do better than that.
Having declarative security is a huge step forward, in just the same
way that updateable views were. They save the need for writing scripts
to implement things, rather than just having a useful default.
If there is a vision for that, lets see the vision. And then decide
whether its worth waiting for.
Personally, I see no reason not to commit the syntax we have now. So
people can see what we'll be supporting, whenever that is.
