KML with nested folders

Hi,
Is there any plan to support KML folders nested more than one level deep?

I'm regularly dealing with data where retaining the logical grouping that the folder nesting provides is critical. Flattening everything into the one KML_FOLDER attribute loses this information. The only workaround I have is to break the source KML into additional files within Google Earth itself to preserve the grouping.

Would it be possible to specify additional KML_FOLDER-like attributes, e.g if an object was nested 3 levels deep, you could have three corresponding attribute labels like "KML_FOLDER_LEVEL_1", "KML_FOLDER_LEVEL_2", "KML_FOLDER_LEVEL_3"?

As an example, the following folder nesting in Google Earth would map to attributes described in the table below.



kml_folder_level_1 kml_folder_level_2 kml_folder_level_3 kml_folder_level_4
