Antoine Sabot-Durand commented on CDI-377:

[~jharting] I understand what you're saying but I don't agree. That's what I'd call a general guidelines, but when we decided something wrong (a mistake that we didn't foreseen) we have to do something.
And we already broke this rule by reverting things in CDI-389. We have the opportunity to correct an issue before mainstream developer start seriously using CDI 1.1+. 

Sorry to say that but there are zillions of Spring and Guice libs out there with dev team that don't care about CDI and that will have no reason or interest to add a beans.xml file to their lib.
This critical ticket is 9 months old with no satisfying solution. At this step I think nobody can comme in the discussion and simply say "no" without a constructive solution. So what do you suggest to fix this?

> The jsr-330 dependency injection annotations (javax.inject.*) find use in javase environments using IOC packages like guice.
