Well, in theory you should be able to get the bounds' mirrors
individually, and read their annotations, but it doesn't currently work.
So, you have to get the intersection type's mirror (representing all the
bounds in one go) and read the annotations from there - you even sent
code yesterday showing how to do that. We are working on cleaning up the
type annotation reflection for a JDK 8 update release.

Yes. The use of an intersection type in a cast is brand new in SE 8.
Although, I guess the Language Model doesn't expose individual
expressions like casts, so the javadoc would have to be worded carefully.
