That sounds like a good option to have.

I would not call it "Moderator" though, because that sounds like someone who 
does the approving, rather than someone who needs approval.

The kind of user you're proposing is basically a variation on 'Contributor'. 
This means there are two options: Either you want all Contributors to need 
approval, which means you need to change the Contributor role, or you want some 
Contributors to need approval, which means you need an extra role.

I personally feel there should not be too many different kinds of users. If 
someone needs something fancy with all kinds of workflow processes, maybe a blog 
is not the right platform and they should be using a CMS.

To make a long story short: If you add this role to your copy of typo and 
publish it on github, we'll take a look at it and see if we want to integrate it.

Kind regards,
