A new JIRA has been opened for the larger issues around the desired semantics of Hive authorization
and ensuring they are enforced:

>             Project: Hive
>          Issue Type: New Feature

> In an environment where multiple clients access a single metastore, and we want to evolve
hive security to a point where it's no longer simply preventing users from shooting their
own foot, we need to be able to authorize metastore calls as well, instead of simply performing
every metastore api call that's made.
