[jax-rs-spec users] [jsr339-experts] ContainerResponseContext.getEntityAnnotations() discrepancy

The TCK test lead and I are both interpreting

IMO, if the app code has attached an entity view

ResponseBuilder.entity(Object, Annotation[])

then only those attached annotations should be returned by

The TCK test lead is saying that both those annotations *AND* the
annotations on the resource method should be returned.

The language in the spec is a tiny bit unclear, but, IMO, it makes no
sense to include both of them. The whole point of
ResponseBuilder.entity(Object, Annotation[]) is so that you can
exclusively provide the annotations attached to the entity.
