Some thoughts about permissions and ModelAdmin

I think the permissions CMS_Main and AssetsAdmin is a bit wierd, a user need the permission CMS_Main to be able to upload a file using ModelAdmin. Shouldn't it be the permission AssetsAdmin?

I have a DataObject with a $has_one relation to a Image and users with CMS_Access_{ModelName} can access it and save it but he can only upload a image if he has CMS_Main. I get a permission error in the iframe (the one that uploads the image) when the user only have AssetsAdmin.

What is AssetsAdmin for then? is it necessary :)

AssetsAdmin is a pretty high privilege that gives access to all the assets. I would assume you would want to keep that away from most users. It is also all about the back-end administration rather than front-end website, which may explain why AssetsAdmin does not give upload privilege to front-end users.
