In beamer, yes.  But I think that this particular interface is too much
of a poweruser one (and I don't know whether there is a completion
function for comma-separated lists right now) to solve the problem for
everyone.

But I think it is quite common to have a different environment on the
outer level and the same type of environment further inside repeatedly.
