[R] locked environment and inheritance

I have a S3 package with namespace called "myS3Pkg". Inside my package I would like to create a S4 class which extends (adds 2 slots) another S4 class from some other package. The class should be created in "myPkg" environment (and not global environment).


setClass("myS4class", representation("otherS4class", mydata = "numeric"), where = topenv())

I get:

Error in assign(classMetaName(Class), def, where) :

        cannot add bindings to a locked environment

I understand the fact that after "myPkg" is loaded, its namespace is sealed, but I was hoping to find a way around it.

I would appreciate any comment on this.

thank you.
