I agree with you about the resources usage just for that. 

Maybe you can try to use a H2 database with MySQL Compatibility Mode (I
don't know if it works, never tried it).

understand that I can run a database and insert all information, likely in parallel to my
own extension. However I think that´s overkill (with one user, and system load and backup
is an issue) and would prefer if the user-mapping.xml [1] could be extended to support a (simple,
i.e. one level totally fine) tree structure.

If you need this functionality, you need to use the JDBC module - it's worth the very slight
overhead and additional 10 minutes of work to get it set up.
