Allow OAuth applications to be granted rights the user doesn't have
Open, LowPublic

Description

If an OAuth application is granted right X, it will only be able to use it if the granting user have that right. In a few cases it would be useful to have some kind of "supergrant" where this limitation does not exist. The main use case is IP-related rights such as noratelimit or ipblock-exempt (which the user normally does not need and/or is not trusted with, but the application, while using its own IP, can run into problems the user would not).
