Well, it doesn't really matter which one you embed in the other; both
solutions "work" in the sense that they convey the same RDF graph.

Granted, this is a bit artificial, and not the most elegant way to convey
that graph. May be this is what was meant by "doesn't work".

However, I read it as "is not possible", which is not true. And anyway, I
think the argument would be more compelling if you took an example where
there you are forced to use a list of subject. Any graph with more than one
source (i.e. node without any incoming arc) will do.
