Hi Sebastian,

Just a bit of background note: the internal XML are not just "annotation 
storage", but contain any local (meta)data associated with a document. These 
include last 10 history steps, last zoom level, locally created annotations, 
changed values of form fields (if any).

I'm not opposing to the idea, but I'm not conviced either that would be a good 
solution. Some (most?) people expect to be able to save and share the 
annotations with friend/boss/collegue/fiance(e)/etc. We provide a share mode 
for them (even if Okular-specific, but there isn't a better solution so far).
