Comment (by rachelbaker):

 > On Multisite, the admin_email input field is actually for an option
 named new_admin_email which gets set immediately when the form is saved.
 Only after the user clicks the link in their confirmation email, does the
 actual admin_email option get updated.
 > The REST API should use this same model to prevent users from
 accidentally changing their email address to something invalid.

 Hmm.. @joehoyle any thoughts on how we should approach this?
