    Description

      Certain types are meant to be *sealed*, not extendable/implementable outside of a certain known set of types (see JDK-8222777).

      Until such a language mechanism exists, it could be helpful to include a "@Meant-to-be-sealed" annotation to help document the intended semantic restriction and to guide compiler warnings.
