I think it will confusing developers, if they can't use @*Param on
instance variables, especially @HeaderParam and @CookieParam, and also
@PathParam, if the matched variable value wath matched in @Path of a
root resource class. As a developer I would wonder, why this isn't
defined. That's what we are talking about.
