Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

At the right hand side, where it indicates what the next privilege to unlock is, the progress bar uses my current reputation rather than the reputation of the user I'm currently viewing privileges for.

ummm, okay?

I first noticed this viewing a user's privileges from the moderator tools, but experimenting on another site, it appears you can actually append /user/<id> to the end of the privileges page URL and see any other user's privileges without any special permission.

The actual list of privileges at the left is correctly displayed for the user you're viewing, but not the bar at the right.

The fixed views are live from build 2013.7.10.830 on.

As for the other part of your question, the /user/<id> suffix for that route is indeed valid and allowed for everyone to see, since a user's reputation is also visible to everyone. I would say in that regard.
