Comment (by johnjamesjacoby):

 I think this makes a lot of sense, and sounds like it would mirror and
 then extend the way that the 'Key Master' role currently works in bbPress
 stand alone installations.

 Is the idea that the current 'super admin' will act as a 'network owner'
 and the new 'owner' pseudo-role will act like a pinnable per-site owner?
 If that's not accurate, would we want to bake in having pinnable 'network
 owner' and 'global owner' role/caps, with global for multi-network
 installs, so there are ultimate uber users in complex installations in
