AuthorityService: questions and remarks

1. If I call deleteAuthority for a given group authority, will all the child groups defined for that group be deleted as well? Currently if I delete the authority through the admin console, I won't see the subauthorities anymore. Are they still around but just not accessible anymore?  The warning that pops up in the admin console is not clear imho.

2. Can a group authority be the child of more than one group authority? What
would happen in circular dependencies?

3. In general, it wouldn't hurt to clarify the JavaDoc of AuthorityService a bit, e.g. what is the short/full name of a user authority? Through testing I found out that they are the same, but is just for now that way or is this "by design"?
