 Currently the "Network Admin" segment of the admin bar is only added for
 super admins. This could be done in a more granular way by using the
 corresponding super admin capabilities.

 I am currently adding this myself with code similar to this:

 if ( current_user_can( 'manage_network_users' ) ) {
     $groups[] = array(
         'parent' => 'network-admin',
         'id'     => 'network-admin-u',
         'title'  => __( 'Users' ),
         'href'   => network_admin_url( 'users.php' ),

 To make this useful the suggestions in #16860 would also have to be

 With BuddyPress now also using more granular checks for super admin
 capabilities this would allow for a much more refined access control to
 the network admin area. In my case I need the possibility to allow
 individual users the activate and edit user accounts, but have no access
 to other areas of the network admin in a multisite installation.
