      Description

      At present only admins can use moodle/role:override by default - the reason is security.

      We could create a new capability moodle/role:safeoverride - and enable it for normal teachers, it would allow them to override only those capabilities without RISK_PERSONAL | RISK_XSS | RISK_CONFIG in roles they can assign

      we could then move some more module and course settings into roles.

      time needed for implementation and testing: cca 1 day
