      Description

      In most sites, each content type only makes sense in a few places. Images are meant to go below folders in the media section, articles below folders in the standard section...

      At the moment, configuring this is done through the policy system: one or several roles must be configured with limitations. When there are many, this quickly becomes complicated, and takes a LOT of time.

      It should be possible to facilitate this operation on a different level, by providing a UI that allows to define, on a global level what content types can be created within different contexts (parent type, subtree, section).

        Is this implying for instance allowing content type set as containers to specify allowed children for more rich content modeling? In that case and probably others benefit would be admin would not get access to create wrong types either, and allowed children would be union of allowed on type and allowed by permissions.
