In an Oracle 126.96.36.199 database I have a user with DBA as the default role. But I had to grant explicitly via "grant SELECT on ..." to this user to allow it to select from DBA_ROLE_PRIVS and DBA_USERS. Since the DBA role grants all system privileges WITH ADMIN OPTION, why is it necessary to grant separately "select on DBA_USERS and on DBA_ROLE_PRIVS" to this user? This was not needed under Oracle 188.8.131.52.
