Hierarchical Visibility Strings
It would be nice to support hierarchical visibility strings, so that an
application could use a URI to delegate control of a certain set of
visibilities to a particular organization that you'd like to have control
those visibilities. Ex: visibility://some.org/some-dept/visibility

You COULD use the existing characters to construct a hierarchical scheme,
but it would be more terse than a restricted URI and you'd have to get
pretty creative with your encoding.

It looks like you could add slash and period to the allowed characters
pretty easily by adding a new statement in Authorizations.class around line
62.

Any thoughts on pros/cons to doing so? Any interest in doing this in a 1.4
release?
