The only problem is when one wants to introspect generic arguments.
This is the main problem that happened with jaxb2.
For example in the following construct,
the MyBean type is not available at runtime.
When using JAXB2 RI, you have to generate your beans with additional
informations in annotations so that this information can be retrieved.

Of course, this also applies to JAXWS (which uses JAXB2 marshalling)

AFAIK, the UUID has been backported and is available in 1.0.4 release
of retrotranslator (at least).
