As an editor, I would use annotations a lot.  Sometimes an annotation
would be a comment on the text, meant to remind the author of some fact
or to suggest some other point of view.  Other times the annotation
would suggest an alternate wording.  In this case, it would be super
helpful to have a function that replaced annotated text with the
annotation, so the author could easily accept the editor's suggestion.

Would annotations also apply to source code blocks?

All the best,
