"In PmWiki, most markups don't self nest."  

Trying to get PmWiki to parse nested markups (in an extensible way) 
is very difficult, so I choose not to.  In your case, I would change

> [+this [+++is [++++text++++]+++]+]


   [+this +][+++is +++][++++text++++]

and it produces something like your second version:

> <span style='font-size: 120%;'>this </span><span style='font-size:
> 173%;'>is </span><span style='font-size: 200%;'>text</span>
