Adding metadata to Java (JSR 175)
This JSR (led Joshua Bloch, author of Effective Java and large parts of Java's Collections API) plans to add the ability to add metadata to the java language. Basically this is because there are far too many java APIs that have ended up with complex XML and reflecton based mechanisms for metadata.

Interesting LtU discussion. I am still not sure I understand why this is a big deal, but luckily we have some contributors who do.
