I'm not too familiar with the roles in WP, but I can imagine a  
collaborative environment where it makes sense to be able to fetch  
posts which you can't edit, in order to have context for editing/ 
submitting posts of one's own.

So the user should be able to fetch any post from XML-RPC that they  
would be able to browse in "Manage Posts" from wp-admin.
