I think it's a great and worthy idea. :-)

I'm sure that you're already aware of it, but on the off-chance that not, have a
look at http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Group_Based_Access_Control -
this extension offers a way to make pages accessible to certain groups only.

One suggestion/wish - it would be great, if only those pages that are accessible
to a user were to show up as search-results. :-)

Good luck with the new UserRights-functionality!
