There's nothing to "prevent" someone from doing it, but such
nested keeps are generally not restored properly. That's what
I meant by "not legally nestable" -- someone can write a script
that does it, but they may not be entirely happy with the results.
A quick fix for this might be to have Keep() automatically restore
any nested tokens before building the new one.
