Well it could be an non-member inner class (i.e. "static class"). But to 
be an member inner class means it holds an implicit reference to a single 
AdminPermission object which is wrong for a PermissionCollection. 
Typically these PermissionCollection subclasses are top level, package 
private classes held in the same .java file as the Permission subclass 
they collect. See org.osgi.framework.PackagePermission for an example.

Sure. As long as the public signature of the OSGi classes are unaltered 
when you are all finished.
