Actually, I would prefer the name BCSequence for what the user will 
use, which is BCSequenceGeneric in your proposal, right? We can then 
rename BCSequence to something like BCAbstractSequence, or even promote 
the current BCSymbolList to that role.

IIRC, I think we already agreed to make a BCAnnotation class, and put 
an ivar to it in the superclass.
