For a worst case scenario, I think marking them for rollback is best (just to be safe). I am not convinced about the annotation because what is this needs to be decided at runtime?

Was there any thought to a transaction marking bean attribute in the exception so it could be handled at runtime as well? Although testing a parent class could work, it doesn't alleviate the ability to be semi generic on deciding whether as an interceptor to flag the transaction as a rollback or not. I think a flag could do the trick pretty nicely.
