Is it possible with planning to rank Stories under each Epic separately or does ranking only work in a flat list?

One of our customers on 4.0.5 would like to view their Plans in a tree structure format, with all their Stories listed as children of the Epic they're implementing.  Within each Epic they'd like to be able to rank the Stories and keep the scope at the Epic level.

Is this possible or does the ranking only work in a flat list where everything's at the same level?

By Implementation the ranking is done on a flat list.
You cannot start the ranking for the child work items.
It would be better to rank the epics and stories separately.
Usually the Epics will be Ranked at the Product Backlog level and Stories are at the Release backlog level.
This is how we internally also do. In Product backlog we just have the Plan Items. is RTC Product backlog.
