Maybe you're right, but I would like to hear other's opinion,
especially users using 2.3.20 with Java 8 and CXF (the original
reports for that issue)

There are few other issues here - first we already introduced support
for Java 8 with 2.3.20, now throwing it away can harm people (but
maybe the note in the docs is a sufficient solution). Another thing is
that we're using ASM in very limited way and maybe there is a better
approach without ASM (I thought about instead) - if with drop ASM,
such plugin won't be needed anymore and we can deprecate it.
