[javaee-spec users] [jsr342-experts] Definitive list of pre-defined types valid for resource-env-ref?

Is there a definitive list of valid pre-defined types for the
resource-env-ref? It looks like Table 2-4 in Common Annotations (JSR 250)
started such a list, but then it left it pretty open-ended at the end:

Everything else

I realize we need to be flexible with this due to some managed objects
having arbitrary types. But, I'm wondering if we have a spec-defined list
of the pre-defined types that are valid for resource-env-ref? And, if
not, does it make sense to expand on this Table 2-4? Or, maybe document
it somewhere else? Thanks.
