I ran into that myself, and it's easy enough (for me) to make sure users 
only ever request authorizations they've been granted, but it did make 
me wonder why throw an exception there?  Why not only apply the 
intersection of granted+requested authorizations and log a warning to 
note that an ungranted authorization was requested and ignored?
