Comment(by sbressler):

 Roles by default are absolutely hierarchical, and that's what I'm banking
 on. Sure, users can remove edit_others_posts from editors, but I'm fine
 with assuming that they won't. While roles can be customized so that
 they're not hierarchical, they certainly are to begin with.

 To continue the conversation of my specific issue, I create a support
 topic on wp.org so that I don't clutter Trac with my questions:
 http://wordpress.org/support/topic/427551. Would appreciate your feedback.
