[cdi-dev] ProcessAnnotatedType & Bean Discovery mode

Hi John,

I think OWB interpretation is correct.

In an implicit bean archive (implicit = bean archive with 
bean-discovery-mode=annotated) PAT is only fired for discovered types 
and the container only discovers each class with a bean defining annotation.

For trimmed bean archive - only explicit bean archives may be marked as 
'trimmed'. PAT is fired there but if it does not have a bean defining 
annotation it's removed from the set of discovered types, i.e. no bean 
is created.
