While I understand that the risk is low (this patch makes space of compilable programs bigger), at the same times it feels wrong that when compiling with `--source 14` I can now nest static classes inside member classes (which is not compatible with what the SE 14 spec says).

As @mcimadamore, I think this should only be allowed for -source 16+, right?
