One other thing that I noticed.
Can we have some kind of differentiation between the static part of the
label and dynamic part.
Right now the whole label:
role(s) enrolled in privilege useradmin
looks like one static text label. I suggest we have some kind of
stylistic difference between the static label and the inserted value so
that one can easily grasp the object currently viewed.
In this case it is "useradmin". I will leave it to Ben & Kyle to decide
how to make it distinct but it should definitely be.
And as Devid mentioned we should not do "(s)" - it is really ugly.
I hope that for this particular example the whole text will be different.
First we use "role groups" term (though I do not like it - I would
prefer just roles) secnderily the word "enrolled" is misleading here.
I see the label being:
Role groups that include privilege "useradmin"
Role groups that contain privilege "useradmin"
