Congratulations.  This is an impressive piece of work, done in a short time.

I prefer this proposal to the existing implementation.

I hope that someone will prepare as thoughful a piece on one of the C 
options.  I would prefer C2 with uses as the keyword.

Since the 'decorator' is a modifier, it would make better sense for the 
modification to come after one has identified what is to be modified.

One nit picking comment on Robert Brewer's document: An annotation is a 
transformation of a function, as a change to the flow of control is.
