"Too many nested groups" when importing SVG to Illustrator

SVG files generated by Lucidcharts are virtually useless. On a similar question they tried to shift the blame to Illustrator, but that is clearly not the case.

Although they display correctly in the browser, I can't find any tool that can open them or any online converter that can successfully convert them to a format that is usable.

There is no support to import SVG into documents such as DOC or PPT, I have to convert it to WMF first (a vector format supported by Microsoft Office), but this simple task seems to be impossible because those SVG files are completely broken, and all tools will either display a bunch of twisted shapes or not load them at all.
