I agree with changing the synopsis, but 
javax.management.annotation.ConstructorProperties is not an annotation 
as described above. Recommend "Define ConstructorProperties annotation 
type for MXBeans".

Also, this annotation type introduces a new package, 
javax.management.annotation. I support *.annotation packages in general 
(e.g. to group a growing number of exciting annotation types related to 
HotSpot) but JMX is a mature technology which in the past decade has 
only introduced two annotation types, one of which is MXBean itself. I 
recommend placing ConstructorProperties alongside MXBean in the existing 
javax.management package.
