[wp-hackers] New Members - "May submit drafts for review" and delete them?

I'm going to be using this feature on a production site in the near 
future and I've run into what might be an issue from our business logic 
point of view.

A user can submit a story. It's drafted - cool. Then a higher level user 
will review it and approve it for the site (publish) it. This is all 
well and good. In fact, the original author can come in and attempt to 
edit the post, and it will simply be dumped back to "draft" mode.

However, the user can also just delete the post at any time. Whether it 
is published or drafted. I don't think our users would do this, but it 
is a concern.

Should this be addressed in the core, or should I be thinking up an 
ingeneous plugin to modify this behavior?
