Matej Novotny commented on CDI-45:

-1 for {{Optional}} built-in bean, the limitations of that approach and the confusion caused (Optional vs Instance) are just not worth the few methods.
Adding all methods onto {{Instance}} just feels dirty; -10.

Personally I think explicitly supporting {{Optional}} isn't really worth it. But if we want to go that way anyway, I'd be +1 for adding {{Instance.getOptional}}.

> There are occoasions where it may be useful for some injection points to be optional, e.g.
> @Inject
> @Optional 
> MyBean bean; 
> This would behave the same as a normal injection point, however it will not cause the deployment to fail if it is not satisified.
