Protein Sequence Insertions

Does anyone know the extent to which protein sequence insertions have more
than one level?  For example, given the hypothetical sequence

                   XXXXXXXXXX[YYYYY]XXXXXXXXXX

where [YYYYY] represents an insertion, is it possible for the insertion
itself to have an insertion in another sequence, and so on, i.e.

          XXXXXXXXXX[YY[ZZZ]YYY]XXXXXXXXXX

where [ZZZ] represents an insertion in the above [YYYYY] insertion?

Regards,
