Absolutely!  You are, however, limited to the account type in the
hierarchy, but you can absolutely move one Income account under another.

Unfortunately it can be a bit tedious.  To re-parent an account you go to
the Chart of Accounts page, select the account you want to move, click on
"Edit Account" (either via the menu, toolbar, or right-click context
menu).  That will open the "Edit Account" window.

have the current parent selected.  Go select a different parent, and then
click "OK" and it will move in the tree.
