Those ideas of constraining sets of nodes to be branched all together would be part of a higher layer of design.
Whilst node-specific addressing is acceptable on the server side, and
perhaps even in the RA layer (perhaps with node IDs wrapperd in entry
props and therefore stored in the wc.db), I'd really not want to expose
node IDs to the client API, or make them visible to users.
