Hello, sorry I'm out of discussion but I was thinking.. (as I never used 
masquerade/adminrole, but they seems to be similar to an extended su)

1 As does logintoggoboan module, when encountering a 403 page, put the 
su module login form (or a link to ?q=curr/path/su).
2 On submit form, check if user is logged && in the "sudoers|admin" role 
(like adminrole?)
3 add all permission to the user (alike #1) and toggle them on hook_exit 
4 Keep a su flag as timestamp in $user session and let it there some 
time, in case it's needed again (like masquerade?)
5 next 403 will update the time period and let go on as root or else 
remove if timed out.

Is a reasonable approach?

Thanks, Luca
