Common Annotations for Java (JSR 250) shamefully approved

After several protests of mine to avoid the finalization of JSR 250 (Common Annotations for Java), now the Executive Commitee has shamefully approved that JSR.

Thanx Doug Lea for adding a comment to his vote the first time I can remember. He wrote: "Underwhelming but innocuous". Then, Doug, you better voted with "No", please. That would have raised your reputation a lot...

Anyone, please read the lousy specification and judge for yourself. Or, as Apache Foundation commented its vote: "I hope there's enough production-tested, real-world experience behind this... :)".

I think there's a general problem with the JSR process (or the EC members) if the committee members vote as they did yesterday!
