It's not hard to type those characters, but (for me) it's hard to

Yes, to me it's inconvenient, but not that much. And I think passing
an empty annotation like you suggest is even worse than not setting an
annotation at all, because I would assume if an annotation is set it's
not empty, and if it is, I would expect this to be a user error.
