Collapsed into the root group. The controller simply doesn't have
anything configured at that layer.

Hmmm... that could be a good final goal but I think supporting mapping
to flat structure will simplify the transition much easier, or
possible. That way, core transition can be mostly decoupled from
controller updates. If we can get to the point where nesting is fully
supported by every controller first, that would be awesome too.
