OK, this looks plausible.

We chose not to overload master_user=x in this way so that code/plugins that check master_user without knowing about or checking the submit flag don't behave incorrectly.  Accidentally granting a mere submit user all of a master user's powers would be unsafe.

We will be pleased to see these features added to 2.1.
