99.9% of all apps

99.9% of all apps do not need access to most data for any reason... but 99.9% of them request it anyway... Restricting sms/call access... doesn't go nearly far enough. Throw in location and other identifying data such as wifi/bluetooth ID's... all of that data should be restricted unless it's 1000% required for the app to function it's given task.
