Looks nice, but I don't like the fact that it does not support the
same tags as standard Javadoc.

In particular, it does not yet support @since and @version, which we
use extensively in Commons.

It also adds some new tags.
Not sure I think that is a good idea - if any such tags are used, they
will tie the code to using Doclava in future (and they won't be
supported by IDEs).
One way round this would be to run Doclava in "compatibility" mode, if
it exists.
If not, you may wish to consider adding it to the doclet.
