First, the documentation needs to say  
@Target( { ElementType.TYPE_USE } ) (with the brackets).

Apparently, the compiler does not implement ElementType.TYPE_USE; in  
fact it does not enforce annotations Target policies when appearing in  
JSR308-specific locations.

I think that can be corrected easily.  However, given that ElementType  
is in rt.jar, I suspect that we might have similar issues to  
'Massager.printMessage method not found' errors.
