Not possible to add external roles to an ACL through the admin UI

Description

In 1.6.x it's possible to edit an ACL and add additional (previously unseen) roles without restriction.

In 2.x, this is no longer possible.

It is arguable that if there is a set of possible external roles, those should be surfaced through a RoleProvider which would retrieve role information from an external system on demand, although this may introduce performance issues in the UI if there's a very large number of external roles available (in our case, possibly in excess of 50K).
