A library of Roles that any Partner or Customer can download and install.

I strongly agree with this suggestion. To make this point more clearer for an example, if you take a function as Sales order entry there can not be companies do differently. And any of us don't know what are the tables/objects the permissions to be given to do that particular function/activity. Once the functions are defined as mentioned the companies can add those into their own roles/user as they wants. Now we are facing difficulties of finding all the objects get updated or accessed during each activities. At least we need a list of basic activities and the needed permissions in the objects to carry out those activities.

What additional roles would you like to have in addition to the ones that come with the product? Security is always difficult to implement because every customer has differences between what they think an employee should be able to see and do. I would see downloading and testing out other roles as just as much trial and error as configuring your own.
To sum it up, how do you see this being easier than the security setup today? Or are you just looking for a way to make it easier, regardless of what that is?
