Organization wide Default(OWD) for Products is not applicable

Salesforce Ideas

At present, Salesforce functionality is built in a way that if an Administrator would like to restrict certain users of a Profile to not to access Products, they are to be restricted via OWD on Price books since there is no OWD for the Product object itself. On the contrary, if we remove the READ permission from the Product it takes away the READ from the Price book and vice versa. As a result, if we do not want the restriction on Price book for certain profiles, the functionality forces to do so. 

Simply, salesforce should provide OWD for Products and the dependency of Price Book and Product as connected entities should be partial so that Product could be treated independent as when required. 

Would really appreciate if this functionality is proposed in Salesforce as a permanent one!
