Hi Lance, thanks for the looking this over.

It's not strictly required to add the since="x" element to every occurrence of 
the @Deprecated annotation, but it would be nice to do so if there is time. This 
is mainly up to the maintainer of each area. It also requires some research to 
determine the release value to put there.

At some point we'll want to make sure that everything in the JDK is fully 
annotated, but that's a longer term effort.
