I don't entirely agree with Mark on this.  I generally offer my
customers the option of using either mechanism, with the caveat that
using the mod flag is potentially less secure.  

You have two moderation passwords, one for "administrators" and one for
"moderators".  Either will work in an "Approved" header or pseudo-
header.  If you don't designate any moderators, then only the
administrator password is effective.  There's no reason you couldn't
designate a group of moderators and give them the password, and then
change it administratively if their service is no longer needed.
