If I look at the docs for GTK, I see GTK-DOC is including details of
the annotations:

eg

  http://developer.gnome.org/gtk3/stable/GtkWindow.html#gtk-window-get-default-icon-list

  "Returns: copy of default icon list. [element-type GdkPixbuf][transfer container]"


IMHO this is sufficient and we don't need to explicitly mention the
transfer rules in the docs string.
