8006733 : allow type annotations only on type uses, not on scoping

Hi Steve,

Alex wants to raise the correct behavior for CantAnnotateStaticClass
with the EG. I don't know what timeline he/the EG has.

I don't know about the difference between P3 and P4 and what the
different timelines and other implications are. Maybe somebody else
can comment on this.

cu, WMD.
