At the moment annotations are only possible in text context which makes them 
only really useful on text documents. Allowing <office:annotation> in a 
<draw:page> can be seen as a bug fix to the spec to allow annotations also for 
page based documents.

And seeing that it is already implemented in OO shows that there was a need 
for it which we see in koffice too. 

I agree that if it should be possible on all elements is something that should 
be discussed for ODF Next
