Aaron Anderson commented on CDI-33:

In my opinion, treating container discovered annotated types differently than extension added types completely breaks the intended type abstraction of the CDI extension framework. The CDI extensions I am developing uses the ProcessAnnotatedType event to convert custom annotations to CDI respected ones. I disable bean discovery and instead manually add types on the BeforeBeanDiscovery event for greater control. After upgrading to Weld 1.1 final from RC2 my extensions are completely broken and I have no way to fix them. A CDI developer cannot simply fire a ProcessAnnotatedType event of their own since the event contains a veto method which can only be honored by the container. Plus firing this event manually places unnecessary complexity on the developer as this should be handled by the container.

>             Fix For: 1.1 (Proposed)
> Currently, the ProcessAnnotatedType event is fired for AnnotatedTypes discovered in a BDA only. However, portable extensions are allowed to register other AnnotatedTypes using addAnnotatedType() during the BeforeBeanDiscovery phase. For these AnnotatedTypes, the ProcessAnnotatedType event is not fired. 
> However, an extension A may register an AnnotatedType X via addAnnotatedType() and an extension B might want to react on the presence of AnnotatedType X. Therefore, it would be great to have the ProcessAnnotatedType fired also for AnnotatedTypes registered programatically in the BeforeBeanDiscovery phase.
