Admin Guide 5.3.5 needs an priv example (ITS#693)

I am confused by Section 5.3.3 of the Admin Guide (CVS version from yesterday). 
"The access to grant" section only mentions privileges once, but gives no
examples other than the summary in the table.  My interpretation is that
privileges can be specified instead of levels, so for instance if I wanted my
users to be able to change their own password, but _not_ read it, I could
specify a privilege level of 'wscx' (note the missing 'r').  An example which
used privileges instead of levels would go a long way to clearing this up.  If I
have misinterpreted what is written, then someone should consider rewording or
expanding on the sentence "However, one may use the privledges specify to grant
specific permissions." that appears near the top of section 5.3.3.
