You're not duplicating anything inside of Accumulo.

All Accumulo is doing is using the Authorizations that a user is 
querying with to make a determination as to whether or not a user should 
be allowed to see some data. This is (although related) a separate task 
than *assigning* roles to a user and/or choosing which 
roles/authorizations a user is allowed to query with.
