SC 4.1.1 contains two things:
1. can be parsed unambiguously _and_
2. relationships in the resulting data structure are unambiguous.

ad 1) DOM-parsing of nested forms is no problem.

ad 2) If the data structure is the DOM, then yes, nested forms meet SC 
4.1.1. If you consider a higher-level data structure (form <-> form 
controls), like Christophe pointed out, then nested forms don't meet SC
