Allow Salesforce Administrators to update records owned by Inactive/Terminated U

Authorization & Permissions

There is no way to edit a record owned by an inactive/terminated user, this presents a huge problem when performing any kind of Mass Update. The only solution is to reactivate the user id, update the records, and then deactivate the user id (methinks that might be just a wee bit of a Security Breach). This is further complicated if the records are owned by multiple inactive/terminated users, because unless you have unused licenses available you must temporarily disable active users, and "swap" their licenses with the inactive/terminated users.
