I implemented this approach but didn't check it in.  I should say that  
it was a bit annoying to go through the custom qualifiers (e.g. Odd,  
Encrypted, EncryptedPoly, etc.) and add SubtypeOf({Unqualified.class}).

It forces checker writers to include this line in all annotations,  
especially once meant for BasicChecker which are usually a subtype of  
unqualified (like the mentioned above).  I guess we can special case
