If you could add something to Kentico, what would it be and why?

ACL - Grant access by role

Currently I can't grant access to a page for users in one specific role using ACL settings.
I was told to use a "deny" role instead - which is not a solution for me.

It would be great if it is possible to grant read access to a page for users in one specific role. This is not possible at the moment.

Current behaviour example:
If I set "Requires Authentication", any user who is logged in gets access, regardless of the user's roles.
If I do not set "Requires Authentication", even anonymous users can read it.
If I use the "Everyone" role (authenticated users in any role) and deny all, I can't overwrite the read permission with the concerned role intended to get read acces because "deny" wins with ACL permissions.

So I am forced to do it on user level or using a deny role, which would result in blacklisting access instead whitelisting - which is no solution for us, too.
