It makes sense reusing annotations where possible.
If JSRs like 308 are accepted by the community and Java 8 was to come with
its own Checker (not just the "Science Kit" this is right now, where every
project or lab creates its own checker and they are useless to all
others;-) then this annotation JSR could even use a new release.


The currently defunct one is also in that common package, beside the other
one you certainly know.
