This is similar to what I had in mind for the wizards.  There would be 
certain levels of wizarship.  For example, graduate wizards and 
administrative wizards.  The graduate wizards may elect to use their 
wizard bit to practice their programming skills, build, fix bugs, etc.  The 
administrative wizards would review the builders and programmers' work 
and `graduate' them to the next level.  Certain graduate wizards may be 
given the authority to do administrative tasks if they show interest in it.
