This is gonna be a new behavior anyway and I don't follow why you just
can't use the default hierarchy (well, of course except for that it
isn't ready yet but no matter what we do this is gonna take another
devel cycle so what's the difference?). It's not like the default
hierarchy requires invasive changes. I'm not convinced this calls for
yet another operation mode.
