      Description

      In addition to supported types defined by the Java SE specification, the JDK implementation contains various other types, some of which are part of the official interface of the JDK and others of which are definitely not. Some packages contain a mix of official/unofficial (or supported/unsupported) types.

      Having an annotation to document supported-ness would allow users of the JDK to more easily determine if they were using inappropriate functionality.
