> (a) what should happen in VE when the user attempts this

Text should be either super- or subscripted, not both.

Nesting superscripts in subscripts, subscripts in superscripts,
subscripts in subscripts and superscripts in superscripts
should be impossible, just like it's impossible to nest links in other
links. Currently only the last two are impossible.

> (b) what should happen in VE when the page already has this

The same thing that happens with all other unsupported input: it
should be alienated and left alone.

Nothing. I suppose there are very rare use cases where this could be
wanted, we should just keep supporting them for backwards-compatibility.

In fact, the only things that I see in existing articles are currently
impossible in VE – you can't nest superscripts to produce, say,
10<sup>10<sup>26</sup></sup> (10^{10^26}) used in [[pl:Oś czasu dalekiej
przyszłości]]. Arguably this should just use <math/> tags though.
