/**
 * Maps a JavaBean property to XML infoset representation and/or JAXB element.
 *
 * <p>
 * This annotation serves as a "catch-all" property while unmarshalling 
 * xml content into a instance of a JAXB annotated class. It typically
 * annotates a multi-valued JavaBean property, but it can occur on
 * single value JavaBean property. During unmarshalling, each xml element 
 * that does not match a static &#64;XmlElement or &#64;XmlElementRef 
 * annotation for the other JavaBean properties on the class, is added to this 
 * "catch-all" property.
 *
 * <h2>Usages:</h2>
 * <pre>
 * &#64;XmlAnyElement
 * public {@link Element}[] others;
 * 
 * // Collection of {@link Element} or JAXB elements.
 * &#64;XmlAnyElement(lax="true")
 * public {@link Object}[] others;
 *
 * &#64;XmlAnyElement
 * private List&lt;{@link Element}&gt; nodes;
 *
 * &#64;XmlAnyElement
 * private {@link Element} node;
 * </pre>
 *
 * <h2>Restriction usage constraints</h2>
 * <p>
 * This annotation is mutually exclusive with
 * {@link XmlElement}, {@link XmlAttribute}, {@link XmlValue},
 * {@link XmlElements}, {@link XmlID}, and {@link XmlIDREF}.
 *
 * <p>
 * There can be only one {@link XmlAnyElement} annotated JavaBean property
 * in a class and its super classes.
 *
 * <h2>Relationship to other annotations</h2>
 * <p>
 * This annotation can be used with {@link XmlJavaTypeAdapter}, so that users
 * can map their own data structure to DOM, which in turn can be composed 
 * into XML.
 *
 * <p>
 * This annotation can be used with {@link XmlMixed} like this:
 * <pre>
 * // List of java.lang.String or DOM nodes.
 * &#64;XmlAnyElement &#64;XmlMixed
 * List&lt;Object&gt; others;
 * </pre>
 *
 *
 * <h2>Schema To Java example</h2>
 *
 * The following schema would produce the following Java class:
 * <pre>
 * &lt;xs:complexType name="foo"&gt;
 *   &lt;xs:sequence&gt;
 *     &lt;xs:element name="a" type="xs:int" /&gt;
 *     &lt;xs:element name="b" type="xs:int" /&gt;
 *     &lt;xs:any namespace="##other" processContents="lax" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded" /&gt;
 *   &lt;/xs:sequence&gt;
 * &lt;/xs:complexType&gt;
 * </pre>
 *
 * <pre>
 * class Foo {
 *   int a;
 *   int b;
 *   &#64;{@link XmlAnyElement}
 *   List&lt;Element&gt; any;
 * }
 * </pre>
 *
 * It can unmarshal instances like
 *
 * <pre>
 * &lt;foo xmlns:e="extra"&gt;
 *   &lt;a&gt;1&lt;/a&gt;
 *   &lt;e:other /&gt;  // this will be bound to DOM, because unmarshalling is orderless
 *   &lt;b&gt;3&lt;/b&gt;
 *   &lt;e:other /&gt;
 *   &lt;c&gt;5&lt;/c&gt;     // this will be bound to DOM, because the annotation doesn't remember namespaces.
 * &lt;/foo&gt;
 * </pre>
 *
 *
 *
 * The following schema would produce the following Java class:
 * <pre>
 * &lt;xs:complexType name="bar"&gt;
 *   &lt;xs:complexContent&gt;
 *   &lt;xs:extension base="foo"&gt;
 *     &lt;xs:sequence&gt;
 *       &lt;xs:element name="c" type="xs:int" /&gt;
 *       &lt;xs:any namespace="##other" processContents="lax" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded" /&gt;
 *     &lt;/xs:sequence&gt;
 *   &lt;/xs:extension&gt;
 * &lt;/xs:complexType&gt;
 * </pre>
 *
 * <pre>
 * class Bar extends Foo {
 *   int c;
 *   // Foo.getAny() also represents wildcard content for type definition bar.
 * }
 * </pre>
 *
 *
 * It can unmarshal instances like
 *
 * <pre>
 * &lt;bar xmlns:e="extra"&gt;
 *   &lt;a&gt;1&lt;/a&gt;
 *   &lt;e:other /&gt;  // this will be bound to DOM, because unmarshalling is orderless
 *   &lt;b&gt;3&lt;/b&gt;
 *   &lt;e:other /&gt;
 *   &lt;c&gt;5&lt;/c&gt;     // this now goes to Bar.c
 *   &lt;e:other /&gt;  // this will go to Foo.any
 * &lt;/bar&gt;
 * </pre>
 *
 *
 *
 *
 * <h2>Using {@link XmlAnyElement} with {@link XmlElementRef}</h2>
 * <p>
 * The {@link XmlAnyElement} annotation can be used with {@link XmlElementRef}s to
 * designate additional elements that can participate in the content tree.
 *
 * <p>
 * The following schema would produce the following Java class:
 * <pre>
 * &lt;xs:complexType name="foo"&gt;
 *   &lt;xs:choice maxOccurs="unbounded" minOccurs="0"&gt;
 *     &lt;xs:element name="a" type="xs:int" /&gt;
 *     &lt;xs:element name="b" type="xs:int" /&gt;
 *     &lt;xs:any namespace="##other" processContents="lax" /&gt;
 *   &lt;/xs:choice&gt;
 * &lt;/xs:complexType&gt;
 * </pre>
 *
 * <pre>
 * class Foo {
 *   &#64;{@link XmlAnyElement}(lax="true")
 *   &#64;{@link XmlElementRefs}({
 *     &#64;{@link XmlElementRef}(name="a", type="JAXBElement.class")
 *     &#64;{@link XmlElementRef}(name="b", type="JAXBElement.class")
 *   })
 *   {@link List}&lt;{@link Object}&gt; others;
 * }
 *
 * &#64;XmlRegistry
 * class ObjectFactory {
 *   ...
 *   &#64;XmlElementDecl(name = "a", namespace = "", scope = Foo.class)
 *   {@link JAXBElement}&lt;Integer&gt; createFooA( Integer i ) { ... }
 *
 *   &#64;XmlElementDecl(name = "b", namespace = "", scope = Foo.class)
 *   {@link JAXBElement}&lt;Integer&gt; createFooB( Integer i ) { ... }
 * </pre>
 *
 * It can unmarshal instances like
 *
 * <pre>
 * &lt;foo xmlns:e="extra"&gt;
 *   &lt;a&gt;1&lt;/a&gt;     // this will unmarshal to a {@link JAXBElement} instance whose value is 1.
 *   &lt;e:other /&gt;  // this will unmarshal to a DOM {@link Element}.
 *   &lt;b&gt;3&lt;/b&gt;     // this will unmarshal to a {@link JAXBElement} instance whose value is 1.
 * &lt;/foo&gt;
 * </pre>
 *
 *
 *
 *
 * <h2>W3C XML Schema "lax" wildcard emulation</h2>
 * The lax element of the annotation enables the emulation of the "lax" wildcard semantics.
 * For example, when the Java source code is annotated like this:
 * <pre>
 * &#64;{@link XmlRootElement}
 * class Foo {
 *   &#64;XmlAnyElement(lax=true)
 *   public {@link Object}[] others;
 * }
 * </pre>
 * then the following document will unmarshal like this:
 * <pre>
 * &lt;foo&gt;
 *   &lt;unknown /&gt;
 *   &lt;foo /&gt;
 * &lt;/foo&gt;
 *
 * Foo foo = unmarshal();
 * // 1 for 'unknown', another for 'foo'
 * assert foo.others.length==2;
 * // 'unknown' unmarshals to a DOM element
 * assert foo.others[0] instanceof Element;
 * // because of lax=true, the 'foo' element eagerly
 * // unmarshals to a Foo object.
 * assert foo.others[1] instanceof Foo;
 * </pre>

     * <h3>When false</h3>
     * <p>
     * If false, all the elements that match the property will be unmarshalled
     * to DOM, and the property will only contain DOM elements.
     *
     * <h3>When true</h3>
     * <p>
     * If true, when an element matches a property marked with {@link XmlAnyElement}
     * is known to {@link JAXBContext} (for example, there's a class with
     * {@link XmlRootElement} that has the same tag name, or there's

     * unknown but it has a known xsi:type, the unmarshaller eagerly unmarshals
     * the element to a {@link JAXBElement}, with the unknown element name and
     * the JAXBElement value is set to an instance of the JAXB mapping of the 
     * known xsi:type.
     *
     * <p>
     * As a result, after the unmarshalling, the property can become heterogeneous;
     * it can have both DOM nodes and some JAXB objects at the same time.

     * This can be used to emulate the "lax" wildcard semantics of the W3C XML Schema.
