[openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website] Bulk user account management tool for directed editing teams (#1823)

This is a followup issue from #1822 

**I am proposing to add a bulk user account management tool for directed editing teams**

If we add a dedicated Director role per #1822, those users would benefit from having a bulk user management tool.  For example, a teacher running a class might want to create directee accounts for a dozen students at once.  When the class is concluded, she might want to delete all those accounts, or convert them to normal accounts.   Similar concerns exist for paid mapping teams.

I realize that bypassing the existing signup flow for directee accounts would require a more thorough review (we should check with the LWG for guidance here too), and building a tool like this would be more work than simply adding the roles.  This is why I split this specific request off from #1822 into its own issue for separate discussion.   Thanks!

_Background:  I worked with [TeachOSM](http://teachosm.org/) recently on an event in which we trained geography teachers how to use OSM.  Several of the teachers have already incorporated OSM into their curricula, and provided helpful feedback on ways that we can support them. This is one of a few related issues for discussion based on this feedback.  Thanks!_
