Unselectable registered block style in list block sub-item

I've registered a blockStyle for the core/list block for changing the list-item-style to lower-roman and another blockStyle for changing it to lower-latin. I can use the block style properly if there is only one level to the list, but if I want to select a different style for a sub <ul> the style is changed for the entire main list.

I can only make it work if I actually edit the HTML code and add the class manually to the inner ul, which defeats the purpose of having the custom style.

@arpadkdweb Thanks for reporting this, and sorry there hasn't been a response in a while. Block Editor issues are generally handled in the github repository for Gutenberg:

The block styles only apply to a whole block, and can't be applied to a sub-block. I realise this makes what you're trying to achieve difficult.

The solution would be what's described in this issue - - the ability to nest list blocks would allow you to choose a different style for any nested lists.

Given there's a proposed solution, I'll close this ticket.
