Unfortunately, they don't work like that in Rev. There are a handful of 
author-specific schemes which simulate it, as well as a number of 
recommended alternate approaches to structuring your variables which 
are more within the working techniques of Rev.

Frankly, I haven't found any approach that makes them work as I would 
like them to, since nested arrays are very conducive to iteration 
techniques, while every alternative I've seen is far less elegant.

There are feature requests in place, but I have no idea how high on the 
priorities something like that falls, since few Rev users would likely 
take advantage of them.
