Jozef Hartinger commented on CDI-15:

Also, the spec currently contradicts itself when it says:

A qualifier type is a Java annotation defined as @Target(\{METHOD, FIELD, PARAMETER, TYPE\}) and @Retention(RUNTIME).

and then uses 
public @interface Role {
String value();

in 10.2.2 of CDI 1.0

> In some cases it may make sense to apply a scope or qualifier in a place that was not envisaged by the spec but that would be useful for a portable extension. 
> For example, the @Constructs extension described at
> http://www.seamframework.org/Weld/PortableExtensionsPackage#H-BeanDeclarationAtConstructorLevel
> is not possible because scopes and qualifiers can not be placed on constructors
