Is the Module only artifact format that can be used to group other artifacts?

 Hi, I am using RDNG 6.0 and I Create four artifact Types from corresponding "Default Artifact formats":Collection, Module,Text,Use-Case 
MyCollectionType
MyModuleType
MyTextType
MyUseCaseDiagramType
Then In my Browse artifacts view, I created artifact with Module type - MyModuleType.Then when I tried to add it artifacts but only MyTextType, MyUseCaseDiagramType artifact types are shown?
Why collection is not shown? Is there any specifics rules which say which  "Default Artifact formats" can be sub-attribute of whom(for example use case and text can be sub-attributes only of module and collection or something like that) I do not find any kind of documentation. And Is the Module only artifact format that can be used to group other artifacts?

 I'm not sure if/where this is documented, but here's my understanding:
Collections can contain anything. 
Modules can contain anything except collections. 
Text diagrams can contain (or "embed") collections and diagrams.
Diagrams can only contain (embed) other artifacts if they are images.

 If I'm following correctly, the issue is that you can't add collections to modules.  Collections can also be used to group artifacts (including modules), but in a non-structured, non-hierarchical manner.

 I can't add Collections to Modules, Use Case to Text,Modules to Text .. and I want to know what are the permitted values for all formats. For example:
Modules can hold - text,use-case,diagrams...
text - can't hold other Formats 

...etc
