Keep in mind that it's more than just removing things.  Sometimes the
method APIs look the same, but the behaviour is different - so the
annotations would have to be relatively expressive.   Although at that
point, why not just maintain a bunch of patch files that are applied to
the sources to generate j2me profile configurations?  We're basically
talking about a fork now.
