 that needs to change.  And it's certainly more likely to happen if our

 Excellent observation.  +1 for adding role/cap management to the core.
 With the initiative to improve the admin experience underway, in addition
 to providing users role/cap management, might consider allowing users to
 manage the capabilities necessary to execute each admin function.  Of
 course that might mean adding a manage_cap cap ;)
