Hi, everyone,

While I can't yet contribute to the set of new ideas, there was a detailed
proposal for the syntax and bytecode representation for various types of
annotations mentioned above in my Ph.D. thesis (Section 6.3, pp. 84-95):
<http://cs.nyu.edu/pechtcha/pubs/thesis.html>.  This is quite dated, and
was implemented on top of Jikes rather than Javac, but can serve as a
basis for future discussion.
