It is worse because while there isn't much need for orthogonal
hierarchies, people often need to apply different limits at different
levels of the hierarchy for different controllers. ie. it often
happens that the distinction between G31 and G32 matters for one
controller but not for others. The problem with flattening like you
suggested above is that it isn't a hierarchy at all - membership isn't

Imposing limits at single level is an additional restriction and may
cause some config complexity but it'll be at least explicit and can
co-exist with full hierarchy in meaningful way.
