> Imagine the following Stereotype for my Services (I spare out the standard
> stuff)
> @StereoType @Secured @Transactional @ApplicationScoped 
> public @interface @Service {}
> The problem here is that there is no way to 'propagate' any rolesAllowed from
> @Service to @Secured, etc.
> What I'd like to have is something like ... 
> public @interface @Service {
>     String[] rolesAllowed();     
>     TransactionAttributeType transactionType();
> }
> where the rolesAllowed() would get propagated to the @Secured meta-annotation
> and transactionType() to the @Transactional 
> -----------
> Gerhard Petracek now pointed me to a cool feature which is used in JSR-303 BVAL: @OverridesAttribute
> http://docs.oracle.com/javaee/6/api/javax/validation/OverridesAttribute.html
> We should ping the BVAL EG for the details. There are quite a few little tricks and side effects to consider.
> On the implementation side, we could e.g. pick the @StereoType annotation and automatically propagate those values to the AnnotatedType which get's passed to the Extensions
