Just going to make a comment regarding the postmaster account and one of the features in CGP.

First is that any account in the primary domain name can have full administrative access rights.

Second is that as of 5.2 under monitors/logs/Settings Updates will have a record of all server based settings modifications.

So this means that if you have multiple administrators all using the postmaster account for modifications, you will have all accounts and settings updates stamped with the postmaster. If you give accounts the admin rights instead of the postmaster password you will know exactly who created or deleted an object and who modified the server. Also it will allow you to admin the server even if the postmaster account is under a password hack attempt. My opinion is that the postmaster account should be used in initial configuration and then put in to active retirement.
