Ivan, could you explain a bit more about why making the intermediate 
resources explicit becomes much more "spaghetti looking"? 

If anything I'd say they provide a valuable access point for 
annotating intermediate granular states of the target. Which would 
allow for some graceful fallback if your annotation client cannot 
render all of an annotation, e.g., the annotation targets a specific 
spatial portion of a youtube video within a particular time interval 
but the client only supports segmenting by time.

[Side note: This isn't the first time that nesting doll structures 
have been suggested for selectors. But now folks see how intuitive 
they are.]
