No problem!

i {
     font-style: italic;

i i {
     font-style: normal;

/* and to be sure */

i i i {
     font-style: italic;
i i i i  {
     font-style: normal;

However, on the web nestled em seems to be used mostly to add additional 
level of emphasis, for which I think this might not be suitable. And 
nestled dfn-tags seem absurd to me.
