Technically it's app access, but obviously it boils down to some 
services not wanting you to freely do with your data what you want.

This may or may not be allowed by the 3rd party services, so would
always be service specific.

Our plans for contacts are to first make all local contacts available to
your applications, and then fine-tune how we're dealing with contacts
from 3rd party services.
