  Not sure what examples are being referred here, I just wanted to point 
out that there are very valid use cases where there are things people 
would need or even have to do and right now they just don't have 
acceptable alternatives.

  Also note that examples are nothing more then just examples and it is 
completely fine to critique them, but let's keep the critique 
constructive and find other and better ways to express the such 
semantics in the Java source code.

  By the way, Hani, you have voted yes for the JSR 308. Have you changed 
your mind since then?
