I suggest changing things up a bit.
For Experts, make it 5000 points. These people deserve it. Halcyonic Falcon, Sam Sam Sam Sam, Mew, all great members. The Expert status can be entrusted to these people.
Make Editors into a new category (bringing it back I should say). This goes to our non-Moderator people of 10000 points or more. Pretty much it would give them all the powers of Moderators except for the ability to ban and make people Experts. So these people can now hide/show things and give/remove best answer.
And for moderators, they would stay as your hand-picked members. However, you would add to our abilities making people editors because it is a point thing. Also, because more people would be able to hide things, you might want to give Moderators access to the recently hidden page or whatever it is (comment if you are unsure of what I am talking about). I trust all of them to be able to hide stuff that needs hidden, but everybody makes mistakes. And I still want it for my own mistakes.
