A Moderator with as many permissions as an Owner can give them, is still a Moderator, not an Owner and being able to send messages with a From address of +owner is fundamentally wrong.  This option should be restricted to Owners only.
Andy -- Even before yesterday's change, Moderators (and Owners) have been able to send +owner messages using New Topic (see the original request). The change recently implemented only extends that same behavior to replies. In addition, any Moderator with access to the Member List could send an +owner message to individuals via the Send Message dialog. Similarly, Moderators who review Pending messages may send private messages to the sender via the +owner address.

Your proposal is an unrelated change that would need to occur in several places, and I wonder what impact it might have on any Moderators who have had a member-management or message moderation function delegated to them.
