> Currently metadata annotations are only checked by certain IDE's using some sort of extra
metadata.
> Making metadata first class AS3 citizens would allow the compiler to check and verify
annotations.
> So, for each metadata tag there would need to exist a corresponding AS3 class that describes
this tag,
> In practice, an annotation like this:
> [Bindable(event="dataChanged")]
> public var data:String;
> There would need to exist a class like this:
> [MetadataAnnotation]
> public class Bindable {
>   [Optional]
>   public var event:String;
> }
> Or something like that...
> The MetadataAnnotation metadata would be the entry point for the compiler. The actual
class would not necessarily need to be compiled in the eventual target. (Or maybe it should,
perhaps for JS cross-compilation this could actually enable annotation support...)
> Thoughts? Suggestions?
