While I agree that there is no proper use case for nesting, if we lift the  
restriction, I would still like the WG (implementors in particular) to  
agree on what it means. As there is no use case, I think it is perfectly  
fine to go with whatever everyone agrees is easy to implement.

If we don't, we expose ourselves to implementations differing, and authors  
(accidentally) depending on the behavior of whoever is most popular these  
days, forcing everyone to align.

The "obvious" behavior falling out of the meaning of nesting is fine with  
me, as long as everyone agrees it is painless to implement, since the  
whole reason for lifting the restriction is ease of implementation.
