Would be nice to be able to "dissolve" a collection and have the objects fall into the "parent collection", I can see that you can have nested collections and sometimes you'd wanna do that without deleting the objects (im saying because at the current state i already had the need to do this.)

Agreed. I'm still figuring out what the menus will look like, currently thinking:

Collection
-------------------
New
Duplicate
Delete
Delete Hierarchy
-------------------
Select Objects
Deselect Objects
-------------------
Link Object...
Link Collection...
Unlink
Object
-------------------
Duplicate
Delete
Delete Hierarchy
-------------------
Select
Select Hierarchy
Deselect
Deselect Hierarchy
-------------------
Unlink
Remap Users (Replace?)

One more useful thing for that menu will be the ability to move the whole collection into another collection (move collection or nest collection) and moving object(s) as well into collection :)

We have drag & drop in the outliner and tools in the 3D viewport for that, not sure the menu should have an alternative way of doing it?

Yes i know about that drag and drop feature, i was thinking a loud with you, since you are doing so. The drag and drop is good feature, the move collection in the click menu is just a suggestion if possible to have as well :)
