As deep as you like.

I'm generally in favor of incorporating RSM into XEPs whenever the 
protocol possibly will eventually be required to scale for larger data sets.

XEP-0060 already enables a large data item to be mapped to a collection 
of nodes. However adding optional RSM would seem to offer more flexibility.
