I think this is a good observation and certainly worth looking into. I
assume you understand proposition as a semantic term like I do. It is
roughly equivalent to the grammatical clause, and therefore there may be one
or more propositions in a sentence.
There are examples of S1 S2 GAR where S1 is the main clause and S2 is a
parenthetical clause, and then GAR can explain the proposition in S1. Then I
expect you would say that the GAR is this case explains the focused

Whether this will work all the time, I am not sure. I'll think about, but so
far it looks promising.
