Interceptors declared using @Interceptors, declared in ejb-jar.xml or enabled using @Priority are called before
interceptors enabled using beans.xml.
The statement does not provide an absolute ordering of the various types of interceptor enablement but only a partial one that states that interceptors enabled using beans.xml are called last.
To make this section clear the specification should either:
a) only state the order of @Priority interceptors relatively to beans.xml interceptors (the rest can be implied from the interceptors spec), or
b) provide absolute ordering between @Interceptors, ejb-jar.xml, @Priority and beans.xml types of interceptor enablement
