I thought about this when developing nested divs, and it's still a
possibility, but I decided against the word "level" because it might
imply an ordering relationship that doesn't exist. In other words,
an author might be tempted to think that "level=2" implies a
specific relationship to "level=1", which isn't the case.
And it is a bit more verbose than I'd like.
I'm also thinking of extending the >>..<< markup to allow more
brackets, such that an author could use >>a<<, >>>b<<<, >>>>c<<<<,
etc. to denote different div begin/ends. (Of course, these
would simply translate to (:div:), (:div1:), (:div2:), or
something like that.)
