At the risk of bikeshedding, I find the names NestMembers and
MemberOfNest confusing; I keep having to think about the directionality,
since they sound so similar. Would be good to find names that have
obviously opposite directionality.
A not-very-good suggestion (but which illustrates the directionality
thing I'm going for) would be "NestDeclaration" and "NestUse". It's
pretty clear which is which without thinking about it.
Perhaps: NestHost and NestMember ?
