Clearly savepoints do not allow for a snapshot to be released; nested

Why not?
What is it?
Simon posted it. It is called RELEASE:
BEGIN;
SAVEPOINT x1;
INSERT INTO ...;
RELEASE SAVEPOINT x1;
SAVEPOINT x1;
INSERT INTO ...;
RELEASE SAVEPOINT x1;
SAVEPOINT x1;
INSERT INTO ...;
RELEASE SAVEPOINT x1;
Yes, this is the DB2 and SQLAnywhere syntax.

Oracle uses ROLLBACK TO SAVEPOINT...identical pretty much.
Oracle's support of autonomous transactions looks to be identical to
nested transactions (Alvaro's advice required there...). They don't
allow you to explicitly call them, but you can use BEGIN/COMMIT in a
host program that calls a stored procedure, which also contains
BEGIN/COMMIT, effectively giving nested txns.

(...hopefully clearing up any discussion on "intermediate commits"
whoever mentioned those...)

Best regards, Simon Riggs
