not done by the 'rolemap' importer? If not, I would be willing to
propose a patch.

Can you not simply define the permission itself in zcml:
title="My Package: Some permission"
I _think_ that should then let you then import a rolemap for it.
(IMO it's a good thing that importing a rolemap for an unregistered
raises an error - imagine chasing an error because you have put 'List
Folder Contents' instead of 'List folder contents' in your rolemap.xml)
