Typo, meant: ... would need to represent a language construct, rather 
than the JLS saying exactly how ...

Also I should have mentioned that, following discussion with Joe, I

the specifications of isImplicit() and isSynthetic() to the same 
"explicitly/implicitly declared" concept as in the ClassFile attribute.
