Martin Kouba commented on CDI-318:

Actually this is not a real issue but rather a hint for clarification.

An example:
public @interface Marker {
public interface Foo {
public class Bar implements Foo {
and observer:
public void observeMarker(@WithAnnotations({ Marker.class }) @Observes ProcessAnnotatedType<?> pat) {
I think PAT for Bar should be observed because @Marker is inherited (CDI follows JSL rules here). The question is whether this makes sense because "A bean may inherit type-level metadata and members from its superclasses", not superinterfaces.

> Is this intentional? Supertypes also include interfaces which are not very useful here as beans may inherit type-level metadata and members from superclasses only.
> Is there any special use-case for this?
