Would you mind educating me what use these annotations can be
for static analysis? If they're useful in headers, I would stop
objecting to them being added there, but I'd then demand for them
to never be present on non-static definitions (unless there are
attributes where the compiler requires them to be repeated, but I
think all attributes are cumulative).
