What I want to avoid is that when a large datafile is read (eg pdb or 
swissprot) not all the metadata is stuffed in to the annotations, 
making the sequence object heavy.  However, sequence specific 
information such as C=C bonds, PTM, probably should be in the sequence 
object. Or would they then be called features?
