Incorrect limitation of nested groups (it is more than 4)

in the EPM Configuration Documentation, it is states the following "The EPM Framework version 4 supports nested server groups defined in the Central Management Server. " This statement is incorrect. I have just tested this with a SQL 2012 based CMS server and a group with 5 nested groups, and this works just fine. Further testing also showed that 6 nested groups work as well.

Considering most people would probably use version based groups separated by DTAP (OTAP in Dutch), it is useful to know you can run with nested 5 groups or more. (Production + Nested groups like; 2000, 2005, 2008, 2012 and 2014).

Perhaps the documentation can be updated to correctly reflect this.
