Somehow I think all of this discussion of handling drafts is
just over-engineering the solution.
The default can be that pages (both articles and drafts) are left
open for editing by anyone, and if an article author doesn't want
other people modifying the page, he/she simply sets an 'edit'
password on it. Why require automatic setting of permissions?

This again ought to be entirely up to the author. If the author
wants to accept comments she will put a (:commentbox:) directive
in the page, if the author wants the comments to appear on a
different page she will arrange the comments to be added to a
-Talk page, if the comments need some sort of permissions,
she can set them.
I don't think we need pmwiki.org enforcing a particular permissions
model on its authors for the Magazine. If I'm wrong about that, we
can change it, but I'd rather leave it up to the authors to decide
how each article is best handled.
