"Suspected compromised administrator accounts will be blocked temporarily while the situation is sorted."
I'm not sure if we need a rule for that, but as it is already written, I suggest a change on the sentence above. Blocking an administrator has no effects as the account can unblock itself or keep editing per block exemption. I think the only suitable action, if any, is removing the flag. Just a small suggestion.
Do understand that we bureaucrats do not have the ability to remove the flags ourselves on-wiki. We would have to request for the removal of flags by a steward on Meta.
Can I suggest a project of a universal wiki administrator marked exam (like to check w:Wikipedia:Administrators'_noticeboard before m:Global_sysops)? Idem for the bureaucrats. JackPotte 20:20, 28 July 2010 (UTC)
Actually I don't have a precise solution, but we could right a form, dedicated to ask some questions in real time, for example on an IRC channel, to control the knowledge of an elected person before giving some rights to him. For example it could avoid to let someone suppress some pages without knowing the removing policy.
