Isn't this because such code is also using javax.annotation directly?
(In the case of OGNL, Click code is not using javassist directly).

If it would be a runtime dependence, than would be quite strange 
considering that I asked the actual developer of OGNL to remove the 
dependency if it's possible, and his answer was:
"But the scope is "provided", so it isn't a problem"  :).

P.S. I'm so thankful that Click is using ANT :).
