Test Drive Parameter and Member Variables

Reflective parameter names in Java 6 points to Parameter names for Java 6 (Mustang) question "My colleague Paul Hammant is asking about how we would like reflective access to parameter names to work (if it is indeed implemented) in Mustang...I wonder whether this feature, inconjunction with an AOP framework, might allow a way to introduce keyword arguments with defaults, in a similar fashion to Python and Ruby?"

The example of enhancing the IDE code completion without source is a good example too.

My view is, it's not an option it's extra metadata on classes that should always be available.
