I do like the mantra you invoke:
Bend or break? Data or model? Always the question.
However I hesitate much more in extending... You wrote:

I have a bit of hearsay (off list from you :) ). We have discussed complex
narrative structures and how best to encoded them. I have carried the
hearsay from those discussions in the background of an other off-list
discussion about the Guidelines Chapter 19 "critical Apparatus" as well as
some tutorial work on the difference between logical and semantic
equivalency [See 14.1.1 on logical (but not semantic) equivalency between
two examples, one using <ptr> and the other, <link>]
And so I arrive at this suggestion (see below) and I would like to couple
it with an invitation for you or others to send examples to the TEI-list
so that some very considerable expertise in content modelling can be
shared and made available on-list. thanks
Suggestion based on an understanding that a critical apparatus can be used
to encode variant "readings" of a text especially in the sequencing of
various parts that appear to belong to one or more concurrent structures:
In Chapter 19 Section 1.3, he Guidelines offer encoders the use <rdgGrp>
and <app> in various combinations to meet the needs of the projects they
are maintaining and developing. There is also the mechanism of <ptr>
<ref> <link> <xptr> <xref>.
<p>The white rabbit</div>
danced all over Wonderland.
<div type="links <link targets="inner_overlap
<ref target="inner_overlap_cont">dance, as
My most heartfelt thanks for the shot at the heresey award -- always just
the other side of the asymtope.
All the best with the nesting and concurring,
