If you use joint lists, it's possible, of course not sufficiently to 
meet your high requirements, but at least to some extent. Sweden used 
to have three levels of lists before 1951 , when they switched over 
to Sainte-Laguë.

Under STV the constituencies/districts are so small that there's not 
much chance for proportionality within parties.
