For Indigo? Definitely. Earlier? Possibly.

The JSDoc is parsed directly from the *.js files on the project's
Include Path. JSDT's support for the format lies somewhere in between
the original implementation documented at

The best examples are the various libraries supplied with JSDT, which
hew along the first of the two paths for supporting a library: JSDoc.
The documentation format allows for descriptions and type information
for objects and properties. The second, and more
powerful/flexible/complicated option, makes use of the
org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.core.inferrenceSupport extension point to provide
types and properties for the source files it is given by static
analysis. The default inferrence support itself is driven by the JSDoc
in the source files, but presumably other inferrence support could be
built around other documentation formats.
