Comment (by johnjamesjacoby):

 Remember that there is no guarantee that the `administrator` role exists,
 as well as its `capabilities` array key. I would add some `isset()` checks
 to avoid unintentionally invoking a role that wasn’t there previously.

 `_bp_enforce_bp_moderate_cap_for_admins()` makes a similar assumption,
 which is not ideal but apparently hasn’t been an issue for anyone yet. It
 doesn’t really seem right, but I don’t have a better idea right now.

 The idea with `bp_moderate` was that it replaced all of the
 `is_super_admin()` calls, so it is intentional for it to be a higher than
 normal type of privilege. If it’s not mapping correctly, is it possible
 that WordPress core is checking the incorrect capability in this location?
