Most developers already have that access, and if they don't, they can 
just ask for it.

I think the reason all users can't do it, is because most users don't 
know what they're doing.  It's bad enough correcting all the mistakes 
they make now, the last thing we need is every user doing whatever they 
like whenever they like.  Ask the poor triage guys who have to change 
nearly every bug.
