Pete Muir commented on CDI-92:

Sometimes it is useful for a bean instance to be able to inject the Bean object which was used to instantiate it in order to inspect the metadata which defined it (it's qualifiers, it's name etc.) allowing:

class Foo {

   @Inject Bean<Foo> metadata;


is a neat and concise way to do it.

This is somewhat analagous to being able to inject the EJBContext.
