Paul, yes CKRM classes at this point are flat, we looked initially at 
hierarchies and
determined that for the first release might add a lot of complexity with 
benefits for the community at large. So we left hierarchies out.
Based on the general community feedback we might have to revisit this issue.

Again, I see cpusets and CKRM as addressing two orthogonal issues wrt to 

cpusets  (partitioning in space)   with hierarchies
CKRM  (time partitioning)         how much of  time does a class get...
