I admit to being baffled by this.

If you have nested org src blocks and you recursively enter each org block using `org-edit-special' and execute the src blocks other than org lang, then exit with `org-edit-src-exit', when you complete this the org buffer will have nested src blocks and results with one or more comma escapes prepended to lines that start with `#+` or `*`. 

When you export this, you end up with a document that has the comma escapes reduced by one in those nested blocks. The appearance of these is not altogether pleasing to my eye.

Have you tried creating a document with nested org src blocks and stepping through the recursion to be sure it is something you want and really need?

If you have a particular use case, maybe it can be handled in a one-off manner.
