[cdi-dev] explicit bean archives discovery-mode 'annotated'

This interface/enum discovery use-case very often uses a marker 
annotation (e.g. @MessageBundle). Such extension can work around this 
limitation by making the marker annotation a @Stereotype. Can you see 
any other scenarios where implicit bean archives are a problem?

I_explicitly_  add a beans.xml with version=1.1 and bean-discovery-mode=„annotated“ and still it is an ‚implicit‘ BDA according to those definitions. Not very self-explaining but anyway. Has not much to do with the current topic as well, so not sure why you mentioned it?
