We should probably create our own annotation namespace as well to hint code 
generators or user tools what an entry really means.

For example a (ii) in D-BUS notation could be a lot of things, for example a 
QSize or QPoint

For user interfaces that work on the introspection format, e.g. something like 
kdcop, it would be nice to have additional information, for example that a 
QPoint parameter is supposed to be an absolute window position.
