That seems like it may be a bit complicated for browsers to implement. Why not just let the values
speak for themselves. 

<em role="+1">This is some what emphasized. <em role="-2">This is fairly strongly de-emphasized<em
role="+2">This is fairly strongly emphasized</em> Back to fairly strongly de-emphasized</em> Back
to some what emphasized.</em>

Granted this would not nor should not be considered good practice, but i think that's how nesting
should be handled
