Good point. Do we also need to add an INNER_TYPE location to the NEW
annotation, since the synthetic anonymous class declaration is itself an
inner class? e.g. given:

class Other {}
class Outer {
  class Inner {
    public void f() {
      new @A Other() {};

Do we need an [INNER_TYPE, INNER_TYPE] location to indicate that the NEW
annotation is on the type Outer$Inner$1, not Outer or Outer$Inner?

This would involve creating INNER_TYPE entries corresponding to any
enclosing classes of the synthetic anonymous class declaration, and
ignoring INNER_TYPE entries on the supertype when propagating the
