Mikolaj,

As GCC Lead Link, you could propose a policy on the GCC Circle that says, "Only Roles X, Y, & Z have permission to..." and Roles X, Y, & Z could exist anywhere including a sub-circle. That would be fine. 

However, since the Roles exist in a sub-circle, you don't have any way of constraining those Roles from evolving (name changes, accountability changes, role-filler changes, etc.), and the GCC policy of course would still give that Role the permission. Now, in practice, I haven't encountered a problem with this since governance changes are transparent, but I thought I'd mention it.
