I would go so far as to say that, if we exclude alternatives
within alternatives, I would vote against this entire proposal.  

I see no reason to add all this new stuff if we are going to make 
it so useless, and not allowing alternatives within steps within 
alternatives makes the proposal useless in my opinion to say 
nothing of more confusing for users ("why can't I have an alternative
here when I can have it there?").
