How many levels of nesting possible?

How many levels of nesting is possible of documents in MongoDB? Do we have any limitation or best practice that states the limitation within which nesting should be kept for best performance, latency issues, DB simplification etc?

MongoDB supports no more than 100 levels of nesting for BSON documents.
