Yes, determining the dynamic nest host of a HC must happen before the attrbutes
are examined. In this sense the attributes will be ignored for HCs. The JVM has
a rule for computing the host H or H'.
I think it’s harmless (in practice) that the derivation of the dynamic nest host H’ or H
for the non-HC part of a resolution request might throw because a non-hidden
class has a broken attribute. That’s just the cost of doing business with the
bidirectional relations of the NH/NMs attributes.

I think she has that covered in the API spec for jl.Class.
