That all seems fine to me.

I don't follow. Items 9 and 10 seem to pertain to the InnerClasses
attribute. NestHost and NestMembers can not, in general, be used to
convey the information required by items 9 and 10. The NestHost
attribute need not refer to the immediately enclosing class. The
NestMembers attribute only appears in the top-level NestHost class.
