Eli is right in principle. I sense that we are facing the same kind of problems we faced when we created mixins and then again when we created continuation marks.  We need annotations time and again and they couple parts of our system more closely than necessary. Problem is, we don't seem to see or have an abstraction that eliminates this coupling.
