Added one more role create-realm. This is handy as it allows adding users that can create new realms without giving them permissions to everything. When a realm is created and the user is not an admin the user will be given all roles for that realm. As a side-effect this also let's you have a SaaS type solution where self-registered users can create and manage their own realms, but not access other realms.
Now it's only a bit more testing + documentation left for this
