Do you mean does WCAG 2.0 forbid this?  

Or do you mean "is there and accessibility rule somewhere". 

If you mean does WCAG 2.0 forbid this you need to look ONLY at the success
criteria.  They are the only thing that forbids.

If you want to know if the working group documented something specific that
the success criteria forbid - look at the Common Failures.    

Techniques only show how to do things. Never what is or isn't allowed. 

Does that help clarify?

Perhaps "forbid" is the wrong word.

The question that started this was "Is there an accessibility rule that
avoids nesting forms?"

I suggested that technique G134[1] covered this.

Do you agree?
