As a "general principle" I agree -- but the very phrase 
"general principle" implies that there can be exceptions.  :-)

In the case of ?action=approvesites, it always uses the write
permission of the page that will contain the url approvals.
Very little else makes sense.  One could, I suppose, want to
add additional restrictions tied to the ?action=approvesites
command, but a person with write permission to the url approvals
page would still be able to change the approved urls without
using ?action=approvesites .
