How about using 'root' for the user/account and super-user for the privileges?
The 'root' user has super-user privileges all the time and the normal user can 
get those privileges via (the) sudo (mechanism).

FTR: that *is* a slight diversion from what's said here:

Whatever terminology we use, I think it's important that we use the same 
terminology in both the d-i screens and the Trixie Installation Guide.
Updating the Installation Guide should probably be done separately?
