It should be a UA decision of whether and how to indicate nesting structure,
and the user should be able to control that. We can suggest indicating the
nesting level as something to consider, but making it a testable requirement
is imo overreaching what CSS Speech should be doing. This is not a usability
spec. It's a technology spec.
