Hi Peter,

Skimming this, I think most (or all) of this is good. However now is not the time to do it. This should go into 9 and 8u as soon as they are open for fixes.

FWIW I have also been toying with the idea of rewriting the storage of annotations in 9. IIRC you posted a patch with a very specific map for annotations. If we go down that road we should probably do a JEP.
