Yes indeed some user must be able to change these attributes of _all_ 
users. Here is how I am planning on doing this to KISS and avoid using 
taxonomy or hierarchical roles in the short term.

Was planning to add a setting to the user setting page allowing the 
selection of a role (or none) where users are given the ability to 
modify usernames and passwords of every user in the system.

None: everyone with administer users permission can edit all users
<role>: users with selected role are given the ability to edit all 
users. users with administer users permission can not change username 
and password of those with the selected role.

Any troubles with the above?
