There is an updated ABNF grammar in the upcoming RFC 8010 (which replaces RFCs 2910 and 3382) along with better examples that might be of some help.  Here is a link to the authors' review copy (it should be published very soon!):

    https://www.rfc-editor.org/authors/rfc8010.txt <https://www.rfc-editor.org/authors/rfc8010.txt>

Sections 3.1.6 and 3.1.7 cover the encoding of the collection attribute and its member attributes, respectively.

FWIW, the "design" of collections in 3382 was done specifically to make them look like a 1setOf attribute with a mix of values so that existing clients/printers could more easily deal with them.  In practice this makes supporting collections a little more difficult (and the encoding of collection values a little more verbose) than is ideal... :/

I'm happy to answer any specific questions you might have about encoding/decoding collections...
