Is JSR308 Type Annotations and the Checker Framework going to be used anywhere in the jdk?

This would be useful if it was used in some places where passing a null is
illegal (instead of manually checking inside the method).
On one hand, code that would be annotated thus would already specify that
null values are illegal , and throw a exception if passed them.

On the other hand the programmer that uses that code correctly nowadays
structures is code so that the variable can't be null. But the checker
framework can't know that right? So marking code that way would percolate up
like a domino chain (making transition a nightmare).

So i guess that answers the case of the existing code. Would sun consider to
make any new code use those annotations ?
