      Description

      While the @Deprecated annotation can be applied most everywhere, there are several uses of it that are specified as being no-ops (JDK-6481080):

      * parameters
      * local variables
      * package declarations

      It could be helpful if javac's -Xlint:deprecation warning including a warning for no-op uses of @Deprecated.
