Not to nitpick, but this would have been a bit easier to use if the list of potential admin users was a text file.
That way, the main admin doesn't have to delve into Directory services just to add a potential admin user.

As soon as you take this user out of the group in Open Directory (and they log out of the machine), they will be removed from the local admin group on the workstation. This way, you can somewhat dynamically give users local admin access, if needed, without having to touch any of the machines.
