After having some use of repeating annotations, it doesn't seem that the separate exception type InvalidContainerAnnotationError pulls its weight; its parent type AnnotationFormatError is sufficient.

Removal of the type will be tracked by JCK tests.

Will go forward on removing the type pending results of the discussion on the enhanced metadata mailing list: http://mail.openjdk.java.net/pipermail/enhanced-metadata-spec-discuss/2013-February/000149.html
