JSR 175, the metadata specification, is now in public review. It's been talked about for years, it was the topic of multiple JavaOne sessions, and it's a big step forward (or, at the very least, a big change) coming down the pipe for "Tiger" (which, for some reason, I still think of as "Java 1.5").

What did you find interesting or surprising about it?
