I am wandering about a different level of scoping than we have with existing
controls. Certainly we have global, package and private visibility, along with
final. But, for example, there are things that are more like "friends" that
aren't always in the same package. Complex software package have to jump
through hoops sometimes, with classloader hacking to make stuff like that work.
I don't have a great example, but I'm just positing that perhaps Annotations
might be a way to do something in the future, so perhaps keywords or "language
nuances" are not the mechanism, so worrying about it without specific examples
might just be "worry", not "necessary consideration".
