Which part of the sentence you quoted covers producer methods?

>                 Key: CDI-228
>                 URL: https://issues.jboss.org/browse/CDI-228
>             Project: CDI Specification Issues
>          Issue Type: Clarification
>          Components: Contexts
>    Affects Versions: 1.1.EDR1
>            Reporter: Mark Struberg
>             Fix For: 1.1 (Proposed)
> This clarification is intended for all methods which gets invoked by the CDI container and create a new @Dependent contextual instance especially for this invocation. This can happen in @Observes, @Produces, @Disposal and @Inject methods as well as in @Inject contructors. Basically any @Dependent method-parameter InjectionPoint.
> Despite it's atm not specified whether this @Dependent instance will get stored, most containers store it in the CreationalContext of the bean containing the invoked method. This behaviour can lead to mem leaks and non-serializibility issues.
> TASK: Define that any @Dependent contextual instance will get properly destroyed after such method invocations. 
> There are 2 things we need to think about:
> 1.) any @PreDestroy method of those beans will get invoked after the method invocation, even if the @Dependent instance will stored away in a member field and still being used later. This will not make any problems in most cases. We just need to make people aware that this will happen.
> 2.) As any Decorator or Interceptor is also an @Dependent instance on our 'temporary' created @Dependent method parameter, those Interceptors and Decorators will _not_ be available after the method invocation. Storing away this bean and re-using it later will probably cause an Exception.
> I still think this is a small problem compared to creating tons of mem leaks. There are quite a few workarounds possible: 
> *) Instead of @Inject methods you can use @Inject field + @PostConstruct to initialize it.
> *) We might add an additional annotation which denotes either @Transactional or au contraire: @Keep for the method-param InjectionPoint
