Mark Struberg commented on CDI-58:

If we would like to allow multiple AnnotatedTypes per class, then I think there are still 2 occurrences which in the spec which must get fixed:

section 11.5.1 BeforeBeanDiscoveryEvent
The container must fire an event before it begins the bean discovery process. The event object must be of type javax.enterprise.inject.spi.BeforeBeanDiscovery:

This should mention the synthetical AnnotatedTypes

section 11.3.17. Obtaining an AnnotatedType for a class
The method BeanManager.createAnnotatedType(Class<T> type) returns an AnnotatedType that may be used to read the annotations of a given Java class or interface.

In OWB we return the 'effective' AnnotatedType of a class. Means if you exchanged/modified the AnnotatedType in ProcessAnnoatedType, you will get the changed one. By allowing multiple AnnotatedTypes per class this is not possible anymore as it is ambiguous.
