Meta: allowing more people to fork out OT threads

It’s not uncommon for threads to go a bit OT, I don’t see it as a big problem because it turns out that discuss has an excellent tool to handle that. It’s not very discoverable, it’s the wrench icon at the top of a discussion and then ‘Select posts…’ in the menu and I have to say the user experience to select the appropriate messages to fork out is quite slick and painless.

It seems I have the right to do that (I’m not sure exactly why) and I do it now and then or when people explicitely request it. But couldn’t we allow a bit more people very active on the forum like for example @yawaramin to do that ? Or perhaps some people already have the right but don’t realize it (it’s not very discoverable) ?
