Description Jesse Glick 2011-12-19 15:34:05 UTC
There is no particular reason to forbid use of @Messages on fields, it was just not initially thought useful. In fact sometimes it is desirable; either code traditionally kept a localized String as a field (better refactored to be inlined of course), or the field initializer is of an anonymous inner class which uses a bundle string in some method.
