short answer:
it doesn't matter what priv you have.  that won't dictate whether you  
can use NetConf.

longer answer:
whether you're doing management/monitoring via CLI, SNMP, XML/Netconf,  
'roles" are mapped to what you can & cannot do.

regardless of whatever 'role' you have and what that role entitles you  
to do (maybe read only on some things, read/write on others), there is  
no specific "role" or "privildge level" required for NetConf.

if you're providing a priv level from an AAA server, that may well map  
to the built-in roles of "vdc-operator" / "network-operator" (for priv  
levels 0-14) or "vdc-admin" / "network-admin" (priv level 15).
but you can override all of that by using your own role(s) if you wish.
