What appears to be the case is this:

You can do what you like with the Collection Object in terms of 
replacing it etc., but never replace the original Elements in the 
Collection or you will break their binding to the DB.

Here is some code from one of my test suites to test for Collection 
'scenario', 'album1' and 'album2' were objects already existing in the 

	List newAlbums = new ArrayList ();
	newAlbums.add (album2);
	newAlbums.add (album1);
	scenario.setAlbums (newAlbums);
	scenarioid = (SESSION, scenario);
	assertNotNull ("Scenario was not saved.", scenarioid);

New Collection Elements typically get a unique ID only after they have 
been persisted because the ID is generally auto-generated by the DB.

Sparse Elements are a common requirement.
