The fact that HTML doesn't allow overlapping links is just dumb. When
I implemented XLink support in DocBook, I wrote a little bit of
extension code to handle them. I chose the "innermost link wins"
strategy, but a UI that allowed for multi-ended links could just as
easily provide a drop-down.

To the extent that you want LMNL-like overlapping, definitely. But
that's an XML "problem" not a linking problem.
