Thanks! Do you have a scan of an example of how it should be done?

I agree that it doesn't look good, and I have added it as 
staffgroup-bracket-nested in the bug cvs. Thanks for the report!

engraver-init.ly and manual -> Interpretation contexts for inspiration. I 
didn't manage to do this myself though.
