Re: hierarchical authorizations?
No, Accumulo doesn't have any implicit hierarchy to visibility labels.
The application needs to expand hierarchy when appropriate.

In other words, if you had visibility labels "human" and "doctor",
Accumulo makes no effort to understand that a medical doctor is a
person. The application using Accumulo would need to understand that a
user who is a medical doctor is also a person and should provide the
authorizations "doctor" and "human" when querying Accumulo as that user.
