My one thought from browsing the proposed schema is that we have two use
cases, committers and admins. Personally, at this point in time, I think
we should be focussing on committers. That is where the scaling issues
are. Adding Jack Black as root on hermes is a simple one off job that
doesn't happen too often, so we can stick with our current scheme for
the time being.

Providing a centralised authentication scheme for SVN, Jira, Bugzilla,
Moin and Confluence will be enough work as it is!
