I have a hard time seeing a "beat" as something that can have different

Musical notation isn’t well-defined in a mathematical or programming sense, so there are no such strict rules as all beats of a measure having to be the same length. If nobody would refer to the last quarter note of 3+3+2/8 as “the third beat” then that’s because it would tend to be confusing.
