Interesting. If the broader community is okay with this I see no
reason why we couldn't rearrange the permissions and how they're
currently setup.
I would prefer to restrict the bulk change tools to developers still
(as undoing the damage they do is much harder) but one-by-one changes
should be fine to release I think.

We basically operate in this manner for Phabricator already and
haven't had issues to my knowledge (and if people are silly we always
have the option of closing their accounts)
