A library is basically a warehouse for books (word used loosely).
How can the Inventory (Holdings) be "just" an annotation?

I agree with you that a work can not exist with an instance, and that an instance can not exist without a work.  

But if I understand what a holding is, the other two can exist without a holding.  The records we prepare for electronic publishers and aggregators have no holdings, which is why LAC NUC will not load the records (although why a holding is needed when there is an 856$u URL for the resource, I fail to understand).
