Is there a sub-category limit?

Does categories have a limit on the number of sub-categories?

I need to create a collection, some of the content might be up to four levels deep. It could look like this:

  • Category 1
    • Sub category 1
    • Item
    • Item
    • Item
      • Sub category 2
      • Item
      • Item
      • Item
        • Sub category 3
        • Item
        • Item
        • Item
          • Sub category 4
          • Item
          • Item
          • Item
  • Category 2
    • Sub category 1
    • Item
    • Item
    • Item
      • Sub category 2
      • Item
      • Item
      • Item
  • Category 3
    • Sub category 1
    • Item
    • Item
    • Item
      • Sub category 2
      • Item
      • Item
      • Item
        • Sub category 3
        • Item
        • Item
        • Item
          • Sub category 4
          • Item
          • Item
          • Item

The only limit I'm aware of is that the category path will max out at 255 characters. For reference, that looks like this:

/category/category/category/category/category/category/category/category/category/category
/category/category/category/category/category/category/category/category/category/category
/category/category/category/category/category/category/category/category
