Just to add a little more color here. I would like to see the following if possible:
1. Delete Resource - User can delete the resource or not
2. Manage Permission - Ability to add new user permissions to the resource (may be left to only admin which is cool)
3. Update Resource- Can update the resource
4. Add Resource - Can create a sub-resource in the hierarchy
5. Read Permissions (already have this)
6. Full Control (I think this already exists) - Can do all of the above
I'm sure you have already thought of this, but wanted to expand on the above
