00663: Groups of Groups
Description: I think it would be great to continue the concept of groups a step further.
Instead of just having Main.HomePage or Main.InterestingStuff
We could have groups of groups, such as Main.Soccer.HomePage or Main.Soccer.InterestingStuff.
Case 1: User Privileges Benefits
This be very similar to the hierarchal nature of folders and files.
Additionally, many network profiles are setup where a member of one group such as Company.DesktopAdministrators has access to the rights of another group such as Company.DatabaseUser.
I think this would give easier use of control over who accesses what.
Case 2: Information Category Benefits.
Information can be given at a variety of levels. For instance, Human Body, to Leg Functions, to Muscle activity in the leg, to Human Body Leg Synapse interactions. eg
I just think this would make somethings more clear.
This has been discussed (and abandoned) several times in the past; the best summary is at PmWiki.HierarchicalGroups. This isn't an absolute "no", but we still have to figure out how to make it work.
