It looks like you're arguing that JSR-308 should not go as far as
allowing annotations on loops (and possibly other statements). If so,
please look at the ballot results:
Note that every one of the voters who added comments voiced their
desire for extending annotations to loops, blocks, and perhaps local
variables, as well.
If this is a slippery slope, it's one that the Executive Committee
(and others on this list) feels is worth treading.
