 Seems invalid.

 Consider Joe, only a friend, and Bruce, a colleague you don't like. There
 is no clear relation between those taxonomies. They're different animals
 and adding Hans to both friends and colleagues is the correct thing to do.

 Consider two other taxonomies and a trickier example: user roles, and user
 caps. Roles imply caps, as do users. And you'd want to override a roles
 caps if needed. (A true|false might become needed, as would an expires
 field if you want to temporarily assign a role or a cap.) The key question
 is whether role implies caps should be managed in the db or in php. If the
 former, we need a taxonomy that applies to taxonomies. It seems possible
