I am not sure if the user really needs to see these things at all. The
SUDO and HBAC rules should be seen by SSSD or the LDAP client on the
host (until SUDO is SSSD integrated) the user does not need to see or
fetch the rules for himself. I do not think that any system exposes its
access control rules in a way that user can inspect and see in advance
what he can do and what he can't.
