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.
