I fear you are right.

ok, lets start again.

You cannot have a non-relative nested surface, I say. If its nested, its x,y
must be relative to the outer surface. Everything must relate back to one
master coordinate system, or the thing is unuseable, surely? 

if the outermost surface says we are on a grid of 100x100,
and the inner surface says we are on a grid of 20x20, and a
zone inside says its at 10,10, what on earth does that _mean_?
how do I draw the zone?

I say, make some examples, and try to implement them...
