This should not be true.  I suspect you're doing something weird with
leading blanks in continuation lines, since the configuration parser
sees each statement as a single line anyway, after gluing multiple lines
by replacing continuation indentation with a single blank.  If you
intend to submit an example of your configuration, please attach it to
the message (if small) or make it available for public download.
Cut'n'paste could mess up critical portions of the message, like lining
and whitespace.

I'm not aware of any feature like that.  In any case, it should be of
very limited help in chaining, since the rationale behind chaining is
that users that cannot autonomously authenticate on a remote DSA get
authorized by some special identity that has authorization privileges.
SO all you need is authzTo in the special identity's entry, while in
general the identity that's being authorized does not necessarily reside
in the DSA.
