[cdi-dev] Accepting class type for simple (qualifier) annotations in APIs?

Think it is maybe saner to have AnnotationProvider.of(type, params) (like
in deltaspike) since it doesnt leave the parameterized annotations (which
are not rare) next the road.

> E.g. in BeanManager there's this method:
> Set<Bean<?>> getBeans(Type beanType, Annotation... qualifiers)
> This not rarely requires one to create an AnnotationLiteral, which is not
