          In my opinion, there should be an "authorized" list as to who can perform the actual grant/revoke privileges...etc.

          It's on my queue, although at the moment I don't have a reasonable estimate for when it will be done. Anyone is welcome to take it if they need it sooner.

          This is now possible via SQL std based authorization introduced in HIVE-5837 which is going to be available in Hive 0.13
