Good point, I forgot about the annotation processor.

The difference is that use of annotations is syntactically distinct from
regular Java code, whereas the Compiletime class in your examples is not. I
think this could lead to confusion, but maybe that's just me.

Possibility to write unmaintainable code exists.

I like it! :-)
