    Description

      This is a useful utility used in the doclet's new api and would be beneficial to other users of javax.lang.model.

      Suggested code:
          public TypeElement getOuterMostTypeElement(Element e) {
              if (e.getKind() == ElementKind.PACKAGE)
                  return null;
              Element encl = e.getEnclosingElement();
              ElementKind kind = encl.getKind();
              if (kind == ElementKind.PACKAGE)
                  return null;
              while (!(kind.isClass() || kind.isInterface())) {
                  encl = encl.getEnclosingElement();
              }
              return (TypeElement)encl;
          }
