There's still no link to a discussion finding consensus on this; a local user is very sure one exists, I'll ask him to add it.

We've held a vote now:

http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Wiktionary:Votes/2012-11/Bureaucrats_and_de-privving

Conclusions:

  • Bureaucrats *should* be able to remove users from the "Administrators" group. Please do *not* change that.
  • Bureaucrats should *not* be able to remove users from the "Bureaucrats" group. Please *do* change that.

I have updated the bug summary accordingly.
