Allow admins to generate and send new passwords for users

For sites that have a lot of user accounts (such as community forums), it'd be really nice for admins to be able to manually generate a new password for user accounts and then automatically send that new password via email. The option to flag the user's account so they are encouraged to reset their password (exactly as they are when using an auto-generated password) would be excellent.
The Simple User Password Generator plugin by 10up does this superbly. I'd propose it be implemented exactly like they have done.
Any reason not to do this?
