RAM permission model improvement

As of today, RAM permission model doesn't offer many customization as it only offers the following role permissions: create assets, delete assets, download assets, forums administration, publishing administration, read asset details, search assets, subscribe to assets and update assets. Other than that we must implement policies if we need more fine control, but doing so implies dealing with lifecycle customization that may not apply to all assets inside a community and many other complicated workaround may be needed to achieve a simple permission constraint. As an example, we have the need to allow asset update in matter of attributes, relationship and/or flowing on its lifecycle, but forbidding changes to the asset content itself.

Besides role permissions, given an asset type, we only have constraints for the artifact it contains and its relationship, without any relation to any role/permission. We need more control to deal with asset types, its lifecycle and its attributes accordingly to a given role/permission. Also, it may be needed to be able to set permission not only for communities, but also for asset types and its specific states on the asset lifecycle.
