I completely agree.

The acid test is in the error messages: if a user gets a message that 
makes no sense to an end user, then the software is fundamentally 
broken. Spring moves lots of stuff that would otherwise be caught by 
your compiler (using annotations and other useful things) into the 
runtime, and this means end users hit the bugs, not the developers.
