I am suggesting to keep the annotations outside the BCSequence class.  
BCSequence is only a sequence of symbols nothing more, nothing less. 
BCSequenceRecord (only one class, no subclasses) is basically a 
dictionary with all the key-value pairs from a IO file and has-a 
BCSequence. in one of the key-value pairs.
