Out of curiosity, is there anything wrong with that approach?

The project I am developing is a business/accounting application, which 
supports multiple database systems - at this stage, PostgreSQL, MS SQL 
Server, and sqlite3.

I use exactly the philosophy you describe above. If I relied on the 
RDBMS's internal security model, I would have to understand and apply 
each one separately.

Any comments will be appreciated.
