I disagree with "only". I'm free to increase the major version number whenever I feel it's adequate, for example if the behaviour changes majorly although the API is not impacted at all.

when changing "real" APIs (non-internal).

Adopters can experiment with non-APIs, knowing they can (and will) be broken by any release.
Okay, I finally created two test bundles to simulate both access to not-exported code and to x-internally-exported code. You are right (and I was not aware of that): At OSGi runtime it's not possible to access not-exported code. That's a good argument for exporting everything and marking the "unreal" API x-internal.
