I am not speaking of a teacher promoting someone at a higher rank than themselves, but a teacher that can only promote someone to a black belt when they are a 4th degree.I'm pretty sure this is near universal. Do you know any arts that allow a teacher to promote someone to a higher level than the teacher?
That would be entirely up to the 4th Dan. If they want to promote high than 3rd, they will need to seek out training and promotion.
I don't think that's common at all.
I suspect you're missing something.
