Antoine Sabot-Durand commented on CDI-276:

You're right [~jharting] but it's far from being my favorite. In fact, I was including it in my first case : Container accept the config and does something (or not) depending on your implementation. IMO we should avoid it as much as possible : it's a way to let holes in the specification.
CDI can be a bit tricky for end user sometimes, so it could be an idea to help them when they're doing something that is irrelevant like trying to inject a bean of a certain scope.
