I think the real solution is to fix poppler so store the annotations
in the Document according to the PDF standard  (and use one of the
adhoc tricks to store annotations in PS files). This is what every
user expects, and would allow them to email the PDF, open the PDF in
stardard PDF readers and annotation software, etc.

In other words, not an existing standard for storing PDF annotations :P.
