There is a java parser in the jakarta-turbine-maven project that I
augmented with javadoc parsing capabilities and I've been thinking the
exact thing as you.

Simple things like @todo, or using tags to represent constraints which
is what iContract does. I also wanted to generate XML Schema's from the
constraints in the source so that you don't have to manually keep an
object model and the XML schema (when using XML to store your object
model) in sync manually.
The possibilities are basically endless :-)
