So, that part isn't the problem. The problem is that if we allow
partitioning nested further away from ancestor, the descendant would
be able to take away reources from the removed ancestor. Waiman
avoids this problem by only allowing partitions to nest but then it's
kinda weird cuz it's just a separate tree.

Well, we do have root or first-level only things. Things just need to
be properly delegatable when they're hierarchical (and things should
be hierarchical only when that actually means something). While not
desirable, considering the history, accomodating this specific usage
that way seems acceptable to me.

I'm not quite sure what you're trying to ask. Can you elaborate?
