Section 6.2.1 of the WD#15 says:

"When a link into a SMIL document contains an XPointer which identifies an 
element that is the content of a 'switch' element, SMIL software should 
interpret this link as going to the parent 'switch' element instead. The 
result of the link traversal is thus to play the 'switch' element child 
that passes the usual switch child selection process."

In a case of nested 'switch' blocks, shouldn't the control be transferred 
to the top most 'switch' element instead of the parent?
