keep that information for him/herself.
"Always"? one of the most misused words in any language.

Completely disagree. Any moderator or admin should be able to use the functionality.
Also here "Any" is just too broad to be used in this case (and other cases).
Moderator and Administrator are just words implying a certain set of administrative and moderative permissions. I can understand the feeling that the administrator(s) should have access to the IPs, but moderators a priori not.
phpBB allows defining different roles which have a different permissions set, implying that a moderator can have administrator permissions, in fact a "simple" member not belonging to any specific pre-defined group can have administrator permissions.
My point is: the words moderator and administrator only imply that that person has certain permissions allowing him/her to perform certain actions but it doesn't define which actions.
In my case on 1 board I was the only one with "can see IP" -permissions, on another I had "enhanced" moderators with those permissions. It's a matter question of trust, not of having a title.
