What problem does this solve?

You don't _have_ to use <nav>. Why would you use it for inline stuff? The whole
point of <nav> is to provide a hint to accessibility tools that the block is a
section that can be skipped unless the user wants navigation, and a hint to
outline creators that this is a section. I don't see why you'd use <nav> in
your example at all.
