Right now the BCAnnotation object mimics a dictionary. And one could 
argue whether we should not just use a wrapper for a dictionary. But 
that's not the most important issue. Basically, they are stored in 
BCSequence as another dictionary, using the key of the annotation as 
the key and a BCAnnotation object as value. Maybe it is easier this way 
when looking up annotations, but it seems overcomplicated to me. If we 
keep a annotations wrapper object, why not store them in an NSArray?
