Why can nested interfaces use the modifier "strictfp"?

Is there a logical explanation for this?

If you declare a top level class or top level interface strictfp, then all the methods declared in top level plus all nested classes and interfaces becomes strictfp.

Why can nested interfaces use the modifier "strictfp"?

Is there a logical explanation for this?



Suppose you have a method and a nested interface declared in a top level class and if you want strictfp behavior for all methods declared in nested interface only not for the instance methods of the top level class then you can easily do that without making top level class strictfp.
