Packets sequences

Hi all, 

RFC 2440 states:

   5.7. Symmetrically Encrypted Data Packet (Tag 9)   
   The Symmetrically Encrypted Data packet contains data encrypted with
   a symmetric-key algorithm. When it has been decrypted, it will
   typically contain other packets (often literal data packets or
   compressed data packets).

Just to be sure that I understand this properly, does this mean that an
encrypted message can contain a variable length sequence of literal data
packets and/or compressed data packets, e.g, is this sequence possible?

Encrypted data packet = {literal data packet1, compressed data packet1,
literal data packet2}, where the compressed data packet1 can itself hold
a sequence of literal data packets.
