I see now, thanks.

I tried that way, but promoting and demoting the subtrees of the
encrypted entry is tricky.

By "correct level on decryption" you mean toplevel?  This would really
circumvent the problem.

Maybe we can store the level in a property on encryption and simply
throw a warning on decryption, letting the user decide whether she
wants to continue decrypting even when it may break the hierarchy.

What do you think?
