Where "risk" amounts to throwing away and redoing part of the
current reference implementation that encodes and decodes annotations?
I'm not sure that anyone not involved in encoding/decoding (not me)
can give much guidance, but offhand, the nested approach looks
more amenable to addressing some of the comments posted by Eric Bruneton?
