Containers nested in list-like manner

Is there a way to tell if containers are nested in a list-like manner?

For example: Con[Con[Con[Win]]]

While you can't create such a situation by just splitting windows, you can end up with this structure by closing windows from a more complex layout.

This makes it confusing to select the parent and the child, respectively.

There is a way to tell, which is by using the script you find in i3’s contrib/ directory. In the screencast about containers and the tree data structure, I use it:

Apart from that, I don’t think you can tell. Maybe use a less complex layout? :-)
