miccolis pointed out that the kitt spec has an inconsistency in role naming conventions. Which one of these does not belong?

- anonymous user
- authenticated user
- admin

The change is simple -- rename `admin` to `administrative user`. There are definitely implications for existing distributions and other sites that use "short" machine-name like roles but I think the change is a good one that should go in.

Any other opinions?

Drupal 7 user role is called 'administrator'.

kitf 1.0-draft seems to be Drupal 6.

Given 'anonymous user' and 'authenticated user', I think 'administrative user' is appropriate.

Title: Change `admin` role to `administrative user` » Change `admin` role to `administrator`

It is Drupal 6, but I thought I heard miccolis & yhahn say they were going to use whatever D7 uses. Either way, 'administrator' still makes sense to me, b/c 'authenticated' and 'anonymous' are just adjectives without 'user', whereas 'administrator' is a noun by itself.

Sounds good.

administrator is also the role name used by adminrole module.
