This is actually problem that applies to whole Robert's proposal. How 
would you define you don\t want insert on new tables in schema when you 
granted it for whole database. I don't think any kind of mixing of 
different default privileges is a good idea. I was thinking about 
rejecting creation of conflicting default privileges but that would be 
impossible to detect before object creation which is too late.
