Yeah, this is an issue. I've dealt with it different way in my quirk 1.9.0 version. Rather than checking names, I'm checking access mask bits. So moderators (non administrators) can assign only non-moderator access masks of same or lower power than their own access mask is (this being checked fer forum, not globally).
Before pushing this to the current version I believe there needs to be more consideration beforehand. For example, ability to invite people (i.e. grant them access permissions) might be governed by access mask too. In general, I think "moderator" access mask flag should be broken down into few atomic ones. One is inviting, another might be moving/deleting/editing/locking etc. This is up for a discussion.
