On that note, the other major change I'd propose is to make B::SF::A 
inherit from B::SeqFeatureI. I really need this for RangeI methods.

Or, heck, since it's such a mess, do we just want to drop Annotated 
entirely and recommend using AnnotationAdaptor with Generic? What does 
Annotated bring to the table?

(Since its one of the modules added in 1.5 I think it's fair to drop it 
from the 1.6 release: stuff that doesn't work can and should be moved 
out of the path of stable branches.)
