Yes, that would be very useful.
In fact, I am already doing something similar.

I have put similar annotations on my exceptions. In the doCatch() of my 
ServerResource I process those annotations and send a JSON document 
containing error details to the client. The client then uses the 
information in the JSON document and converts it to the same exception.

On the server side this works fine but my client implementation is not 
as good as you are describing. Similar functionality provided by Restlet 
would be very welcome.
