I would reeeeeaaally like to see a beta by the end of 
Dec. - but don't quote me yet. Part of what I'm doing 
today is figuring what the resource situation looks like.

An example might be: if somehow someone took all permissions
away from all of your managers, they'd be out of luck. The 
superuser could still log in and fix that though.

I don't know the exact details of how a superuser is created 
yet - I expect that you will run zpasswd.py with a special 
option though (and restart). The relevant install docs will 
be updated to outline this when that branch is merged.
