Yes, I think you are right,  and I think that this points to one of the 
[predicted] challenges with using only annotations for test organization.

I wonder if we can generate some kind of dependency graph as part of the 
build, so that if testing in a module, it can figure out the set of 
modules to test that are "n-away" dependent.  (IOW, test module + 1-away 
because it's quick, then before checkin test module + 2-away [or all])
