Absolutely. In fact, Mailman has no real knowledge of whether a list
member is another list or not.

The umbrella list settings are mainly so that administrivia from the
umbrella list is sent to member-owner (or other suffix) rather than
member. This makes it tricky to have a list with a combination of
lists and people as its direct members, but there is no problem with
lists of lists of lists to any level.
