With a large number of roles these merged capabilities could get very large; the number will grow exponentially for each new role added.
In your example are you proposing there would be a new *named* "AdminEditor" role, or it would just be handled behind the scenes and if someone modified Editor it will also modify the merged role too?
If the latter, that's cool. If the former, I think that could overwhelm end users.
