Adding a content editor role to Drupal 8 for a better out-of-the-box experience (including as contributed modules which can now set sensible defaults are enabled)

Here’s an issue for adding a content editor role at least to the standard installation profile; apparently i dropped the ball there so help appreciated!

We’ve added a Content Editor role to Drutopia already; i would be in support of making that ‘functionality’ (a smattering of configuration) into a separate module so that all of us making modules (not just Drutopia features) can require the Content Editor Role module and be able to set sensible defaults, without having to wait on core.
