Sven Linstaedt commented on CDI-633:

To be a more concrete: I tried to write a meta-extension allowing "binding" of beans by (e.g. like in "interceptor binding") firing custom events during container initialization, similar to {{ProcessAnnotatedType<T>}}, that may be handled by other extensions. The type parameter {{T}} is not known statically, but rather reflectively as {{java.lang.reflect.Type}}. So even being able to retrieve an {{Event<T>}} before {{AfterDeploymentValidation }} does not help in this case, as {{Event<T>}} was meant for use with a concrete type parameter {{T}} either via {{Class}} or {{TypeLiteral}}.

This proposal does not supersedes it's linked duplicates imho.

> * this would allow to define the _specified type_ - the container may use the specified type to infer the parameterized type of the event types
> * the method should return {{javax.enterprise.event.Event<Object>}} with no qualifiers
