Sure. Very deep nesting of selectors is uncommon in the first place, tho (based on preprocessor experience), and deep nesting of *selector lists* is even less common. When things are deeply nested, they commonly just do appending, like `.foo { & .bar { & .baz {...`, which is easy to handle.

That said, I'm still okay with a maximum nesting depth set to something reasonable, like 5 or 6.
