It looks like the Joe-E library can be updated to use this proposal by
simply adding the last 3 lines below to

    static private boolean safe(final Member member) {
        final Class declarer = member.getDeclaringClass();
        if (declarer.getPackage().isAnnotationPresent(verified.class)) {
            return true;
