I agree with naming it 6.0. Another more important reason is that this 
version of bcel is backwards incompatible with previous releases, in 
this regard:

In previous releases, if client code wanted to process annotations, when 
processing attributes had to look for ATTR_UNKNOWN, and once received 
look at the attribute type byte and see if it matches the constants for 
the various annotation values. Now with this version, you will not 
receive the constant ATTR_UNKNOWN for annotations, but instead get the 
first class annotation constant itself. Therefore code will break 
because they will never process these annotations.
