Yes, if we speak about *trees*

However, with *streaming*  the string representation of a descendant
node (and of whole subtrees) is actually, physically nested in the
string representation of the root of the tree (it is *physically*
between the start-tag and the end-tag of the root element).

As we are struggling to understand streaming better, it is good to use
terminology that is best reflecting the actual streaming -- thus
"nested" is a precise reflection of the real, physical nesting during
streaming.
