A reasonable set of guidelines might be:

0) The permission to set user permissions should be reserved for PPMC-delegates

1) Any permission that allows actions that cannot be logged or cannot
easily be undone should be reserved for PPMC-delegates

2) Any permission that allows one user rights over another user
(banning, suspending, locking pages, etc.) should be reserved for

3) Other permissions can be shared more broadly.

The normal case would be to have PPMC delegates be committers.  If not
now, then they would be obvious candidates for to become committers.
