John Ament commented on CDI-621:

Its not clear from looking at the method name that only the annotations are removed.  It might be better to call it something like {{clearAnnotations}} or similar.  As mentioned, the other two are not an issue, since they're explicitly taking annotation parameters when doing their remove.  Again, this is all from my POV.

> The method removeAll is ambiguous.  This problem doesn't exist for remove(Annotation) or remove(Class) since they're type safe.  The removeAll method presupposes that annotations are the only thing to configure.
