I like just about everything about this proposal, Bruno.

One thing I'm still iffy on, though: the "Submissions By Editor" grid would replace the "Assigned Submissions" grid we currently have, and while it would nicely suit Editors, who need a comprehensive overview of active content, it might be confusing for other roles, particularly Reviewers, who will likely be presented with a Category grid with a single Category row (the editor) and a single Submission row (the review assignment).

I think it might make sense to have "Submissions By Editor" (a category grid) only for full editors, and "Assigned Submissions" (a regular grid) for roles below that. We could find a way of naming the grid that's consistent, e.g. "Assigned Submissions" and "Assigned Submissions By Editor". It might make sense to grant the category grid also to sub editors.

Another confusing scenario will crop up when submissions are assigned to multiple editors.

FYI, we also need to consider the Tasks list as part of this discussion. If we make the submission lists context-specific, do we likewise make the task list the same? Do we change the "Submit" dropdown (when available, allowing the user to choose what journal/press to submit to) into a "submit to this press" button?
